“We do not buy into the ‘reflation’ story and hence still deem it too early for EUR/USD to make the next level shift higher. For this to happen in Q1 would require a cyclical outperformance of the eurozone versus the US and/or upside wage/inflation surprises with neither being our base case. Today, watch out for US CPI: the monthly uptick that we look for should keep Fed March hike expectations alive and halt the EUR/USD uptick.”
