EUR/USD up 0.17%. Brent oil at $49.

EUR/USD was trading slightly above the yesterday close throughout the day. As of 1:00 PM EDT the pair was trading at 1.1328, which is 0.17% higher than the previous close.

UOB analysts provided their bearish outlook on EUR/USD yesterday. “The unexpected breach of 1.1350 and 1.1300 last Friday has shifted the risk to the downside. While the outlook for EUR is bearish from here, the downside potential appears to be limited to a test of April’s low of 1.1210/15. Downward momentum is only beginning to improve and a break back above 1.1400 is enough to indicate that a short-term low is in place” written in the report.

Goldman Sachs, which was among the most bearish forecasters of oil price, announced today its positive outlook on prices, however it cut its 2017 forecast from 57.5 USD/bbl to 52.50 USD/bbl.
