EUR/USD Rises Despite Upward Revision to US GDP

September 28, 2017 by

US gross domestic product received an upward revision to its reading for the second quarter of this year. But that did not prevent EUR/USD from halting its decline today.

GDP rose 3.1% in Q2 2017 according to the final estimate after increasing 1.2% in Q1. The actual reading was a bit better than the average forecast and the previous estimate of 3.0%. (Event A on the chart.)

Initial jobless claims were at the seasonally adjusted rate of 272k last week. That is compared to the consensus estimate of 269k and the previous week’s reading of 260k. (Event A on the chart.)
