Euro Soft Ahead of ECB Monetary Policy Meeting

The euro was soft today, falling against almost all most-traded currencies. The only exception was the New Zealand dollar, which failed to maintain the intraday rally versus the euro. While domestic macroeconomic data was somewhat disappointing, the upcoming monetary policy meeting of the European Central Bank was the main driver for the common currency of the eurozone.

EUR/USD Falls Despite Positive Eurozone Macro Releases

EUR/USD fell today despite all macroeconomic reports released in the eurozone during Wednesday’s trading session were good, and the vast majority of them beat expectations. Against other rivals, the euro did not show a unified performance, rising against some but falling against others.

Euro Weak Despite Risk Appetite, Positive Economic Data

Markets were in a risk-on mode on Monday. Usually, positive market sentiment is good for the euro but that was not the case today. The shared 19-nation currency fell against almost all of its most-traded rivals, managing to gain only on safe currencies, which seemed unattractive for traders amid risk appetite. And even then, the euro failed to beat the US dollar, which is considered to be one of the safe-haven currencies.

Euro Strong After Market Sentiment Recovers

The euro was strong today, rising against all other most-traded currencies, with the exception of the Australian dollar. The possible reason for the rally was the market sentiment, which was recovering after confusing tweets from US President Donald Trump. Macroeconomic reports released in the eurozone today were mixed.

Euro Firm After Mixed Data, Comments from ECB Board Member

The euro rose today. In fact, the shared 19-nation currency was one of the strongest currencies during Monday’s trading session despite mixed domestic macroeconomic data released during Monday’s trading. Positive comments made in the interview with a European Central Bank board member were supportive of the currency.

Euro Among Weakest After Dire Macroeconomic Data

The euro was among the weakest currencies on the Forex market today after the release of a bunch of extremely poor macroeconomic reports and a very pessimistic economic forecast. While the currency has trimmed its losses by now, it is still trading lower against the vast majority of the most-traded currencies. The one exception was the Great Britain pound, which was even weaker than the euro.

Euro Recovers After Mixed Economic Data, Supported by Plans for Easing Lockdown

The euro opened sharply higher today but has erased losses against the majority of its most-traded peers by now. The traders’ cautious mood was weighing on the currency, but hopes about an end to lockdown in the foreseeable future were supporting the euro. Eurozone macroeconomic data released over Monday’s trading session was mixed.

Euro Gains on German Factory Orders, US Dollar’s Woes

The euro fell against safer currencies, like the Swiss franc and the Japanese yen, but gained on other most-traded rivals, including the US dollar, the Great Britain pound, and commodity currencies. Surprisingly, that did not include the New Zealand dollar, which turned out to be one of the strongest currencies during Friday’s trading session.

Euro Soft amid Raging Coronavirus Fear

The euro declined today against other most-traded currencies as markets remained in the grip of coronavirus epidemic fear, which made traders less willing to risk and prefer safer currencies to riskier ones. Germany released a report on its economic growth during today’s session but markets largely ignored it.

Euro Slightly Higher After Positive Eurozone Reports, Loses Gains Later

The euro was trading slightly higher against most other major currencies today, though against some of them it was flat. Macroeconomic reports released in the eurozone today were good, but traders focused their attention on the events that will be happening later this week. Among them will be a monetary policy meeting of the European Central Bank. Currently though, the euro trimmed its gains, losing […]
