EUR/USD Bearish After Fundamental News

June 1, 2007 (Last updated on November 29, 2009) by

EUR/USD broke through 1.3400 today on Forex market — showing a new 7-week low. Good macroeconomic data from U.S. was the reason for this break-through. Nonfarm payrolls — a major employment indicator of the U.S. economy — increased by 157,000 in May (22 thousands more than expected), while ISM Index — reported an increase by 0.3% up to 55.0% (against 54.0% expected). ISM Index means a lot in the U.S. economy because it describes its most powerful industries, and greatly influences FOMC rate decisions. Now it is quite possible to see an increase in U.S. interest rates by 0.25% this Fall, in my opinion.
