EUR: Will the EUR’s underperformance alongside low yielders last? - MUFG

eFXdata reports that MUFG Research discuss EUR prospects.

"The EUR has been one of the worst performing G10 currencies so far this year alongside the other low/negative yielding currencies of the CHF and JPY...The EUR’s recent failure to continue to strengthen on the back of the ongoing improvement in global investor risk sentiment could suggest/encourage more use of the EUR as a funding currency, and/or reflect more concern amongst market participants that the euro area will not benefit as much from global recovery optimism. The developments suggest that the EUR could continue to underperform in the nearterm, but there is upside potential for the EUR if relative pessimism over the euro area growth outlook proves overdone," MUFG adds.
