LONDON (Reuters) - A sell off in the U.S. dollar has further to go, Deutsche Bank said in a report on Tuesday, forecasting the euro could rally to $1.15 by year-end and $1.20 by the end of 2021.

Europe's single currency is currently trading at around $1.12 EUR=EBS and has been lifted in recent weeks by a pick up in economic activity as lockdown restrictions ease.

“The dollar has had a sizeable sell-off since we turned bearish in May, but we don’t think this move is over,” Deutsche Bank analysts said, adding that positioning in risky assets remained underweight.

In a report, Deutsche Bank added that it saw yields on safe-haven German government bonds, or Bunds, rising to -0.2% DE10YT=RR by year-end from current levels around -0.45%.

The bank said it was overweight equities on improving data.
