EUR/USD Rallies Despite of Holidays

December 27, 2007 (Last updated on December 3, 2009) by

Despite the holidays period has already came to the U.S. and European markets, EUR/USD is rallying up fast for the second day in a row now. And if today there is plenty of fundamental news that can push euro up by almost 100 pips against U.S. dollar, yesterday’s bullish candle has no such reasons.

Today, the employment market of U.S. showed that it is suffering because of the subprime lending crisis too, initial jobless claims continue to grow — 349k against 340k expected, previous week value was also revised up from 346k to 348k.

November durable goods orders hadn’t met the hopes of the analysts that expected 2.2% growth, it was reported at 0.1% — though, still better than the October’s decline by 0.4%.

December Consumer confidence index reported by Conference Board was the only good indicator which came out in United States today — it grew up from 87.8 to 88.6.

Crude oil inventories fell during the week ending December 21 by 3.3 million barrels. And now Department of Energy says that at 293.6 million barrels they are in lower half of the average range for this time of year.
