EUR/USD: A Rare Fledgling EUR Uptrend Forming; A Wedge Bottom Confirmed - BofAML
First appeared on eFXplus on Jun 17 - 11:15 AM

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Research discusses EUR/USD outlook and highlights a bullish bias from the technical and quant perspective.

"Cumulative EUR/USD price action had reset to flat, offsetting depreciation of the last 3 months. The broader USD trend has faltered and rolled over, with the MAA breadth reverting to just +2 after briefly capping at +9 in April, consistent with USD selling we saw in our proprietary flows. "The short-dated SDR flows in EUR/USD leaned more toward calls last week on the back of a robust pickup in volumes. Our positioning model is showing a rare fledgling EUR uptrend forming with rising MAA, supported by bullish Up/Down vol and Residual Skew," BofAML notes. 

"A wedge bottom pattern is confirmed and targets 1.1461, 1.1545, 1.1660 and possibly 1.1830. We favor being long or buying a dip into the mid-1.12s and, while 1.11 holds, looking for a rally to aforementioned targets. A base near 1.11 and breakouts above the 50d SMA, trend line, prior peaks, 100d SMA and April high suggest an uptrend is underway," BofAML adds.
