Euro ‘to weaken’ in coming months

Have your say

Evaporating hopes for an economic recovery and last month’s botched bailout of Cyprus persuaded analysts to chop their outlook again for the euro over the coming months, a Reuters poll showed.

Although the median expectation of more than 60 analysts surveyed over the last few days shows the euro trading around its current levels near $1.28 (84p) over the next few months, further out, the poll shows the currency weakening to around $1.25.

Overall, forecasts for the euro were about 2 cents weaker compared with last month’s poll, which also reflected its roughly 6 per cent depreciation against the dollar since the start of February.
