FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Nomura strategists Jens Nordvig and Ankit Sahni note that the IMF released its “Composition of Official Foreign Exchange Reserves” (COFER) data for Q4 yesterday.

They see that the euro share of central bank reserves has continued to decline, despite the strong rally in the EUR during the quarter.
