Key Quotes

“The EUR-USD may continue to loiter amidst a top heavy tone with the OECD yesterday urging further action from the ECB”.

“Data points meanwhile are providing no relief, with the July trade surplus shrinking from the previous month at EUR12.2bn”.

“As noted yesterday, the pair may be expected to bounce within a 1.2900-1.3000 range pending further cues (i.e., FOMC on Wednesday and the TLTRO take up on Thursday)”.
