Credit Suisse trade of the week: Buy EUR/USD

Credit Suisse likes EUR/USD longs

Currency investors should consider buying EUR/USD this week , advises Credit Suisse in its weekly FX pick to clients. The trade is macro-technical driven.

" Our technical analysts are long EURUSD on a tactical horizon, looking for fresh buying around 1.1162/54 to 1.1300 and then 1.1376.

We are hesitant to chase typical risk-on trades in G10 FX this week , and would stay cautious in holding longs in currencies like GBP where there are also conflicting and uncertain political and data risks," CS argues.

On the technical front , CS notes that EURUSD has seen a decline, turning the attention onto 13- day average at 1.1162/54 which the pair is currently hovering around and should keep the immediate bias topside.

"Resistance moves to 1.1300, followed by 1.1376/87. Above the latter is needed see a tougher test at the 78.6% retracement of the August/December fall and the October 2015 peak at 1.1459/95.

We would expect this to cap at first, and above it is needed to turn attention on the August 1.1714 peak, followed by the 38.2% retracement of 2014/15 fall at 1.1808," CS adds.

CS maintains a long EUR/USD position as a technical-tactical trade from 1.1155 targeting a move to 1.1450, with a stop at 1.1054 .
