Euro Falls on Mixed German Data Amid Depressed Market Sentiment

The euro today fell against the US dollar following mixed releases from Germany led by the weak import price index data among others. The EUR/USD currency pair gave up yesterday’s gains that were triggered by positive investor sentiment towards the single currency based on hopes for a Brexit deal.
