Will Jim OâNeill have to eat his words or be shown as prescient? http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a1fXeQHg8Y_s&pos=4 The overwhelming bias against the euro currently in financial markets may be a sign that the currency is about to rally, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Chief Global Economist Jim OâNeill said. Only three of 600 people he spoke to recently predicted the currency would strengthen, he said. âIn my experience of being in the foreign-exchange market for 29 years, that makes it virtually guaranteed that the euro isnât going to go down much further,â OâNeill said in a Bloomberg interview from his London office yesterday. He predicts the euro, currently around $1.2375, may fall to as low as $1.20.
