EUR's correlations moderating - Scotiabank

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Eric Theoret, CFA, CMT FX Strategist at Scotiabank explained that the EUR’s correlation to both gold prices and risk assets is moderating.

Key Quotes:

"The 30 day rolling correlation to gold fading to 0.3 from its recent summer highs above 0.80."

"EUR has also softened its ties to the S&P 500, with the negative correlation moderating to -0.54 from late August levels at -0.92."

"The softening suggests a shift in focus from broader market sentiment back toward fundamentals, with relative policy considerations likely to provide near-term pressure on EUR as market participants look to an increasing probability of greater ECB accommodation."

EUR/USD rises toward 1.1250

EUR/USD was rejected from levels under 1.1200 and is now attempting to rise on top of 1.1250. Currently it trades at 1.1235/38, facing the hourly 20-SMA. Price action continues to be limited across the board, particularly in European crosses.
