Saxo wins with EUR/USD call

FOMC may remove the word “patient” from its statement


Saxo Bank topped last week's one-month currency forecasts by correctly predicting the scope of EUR/USD losses, in anticipation of the European Central Bank's (ECB) quantitative easing (QE) programme.

On February 20, the Danish bank forecast EUR/USD to fall from 1.13 to 1.10 – just before the monetary policy divergence between the US Federal Reserve and the ECB was set to widen with the launch of Europe's QE programme on March 9.
