EUR Outlook for 26 October 2017

Neutral

After rallying in the second week of October, our medium-term outlook on the euro is now neutral. The currency is appreciating as the ECB is expected to announce its decision to taper quantitative easing next year. Recently, Catalonia's president also avoided a unilateral declaration of independence, choosing instead to call for dialog while accepting the mandate of the referendum. While the currency looked overbought in mid-October, this is no longer the case today and the euro is trading within normal ranges. This is based on various technical indicators when looking at a weekly chart.
