Although our 3Q target still suggests some decline, it is likely to be more restrained in the near term, beli evesAthanasios Vamvakidis, head of G-10 currency strategy at BofA, in a note to clients on Thursday.
He noted that ECB monetary easing was positive for the euro, as it will help support the economy of the euro zone, as well as will dispel the market fears that the ECB is already unable to do anything. Similarly, in the European fiscal policy, the stimulus steps and the proposal for a recovery fund were positive and will support the euro in the near term.
