Europe Market Movements

Recent trends are continuing with the EUR down against the USD at 1.1924. The single currency has also lost value against the Pound, with it trading this morning at 0.8791, down from 0.8846 on 4 May. On a day that’s weak on economic data, it remains to be seen how international events affect the Eurozone currency. Choose a responsible broker for your Forex/CFD trading.

US Market Movements

The USD has also extended its general bullish trend against the CHF, with the pair trading this morning at 1.0024, up from 0.999 yesterday morning. Positive unemployment data in Switzerland and Germany this morning provided the CHF with a respite but will Fed Chair Powell’s speech this morning give another boost to the greenback?
