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 Falls to Three-Year Low vs. Franc on Coronavirus Fears, Economic Data

The euro was weak today, falling for the sixth consecutive day to the lowest level in three years against the Swiss franc. Risk aversion caused by an unexpected surge of infected people in China was weighing on the shared 19-nation currency, while eurozone macroeconomic data was not helping as well.

Euro Flat-to-Higher Despite Slump of German Manufacturing Orders

The euro was flat today and even gained on some of its rivals despite the slump of German manufacturing orders. The likely reason for the decent performance was the positive market sentiment.

Euro Holds Ground After Inflation Slows

The euro rose against other most-traded currencies today even after a report confirmed that eurozone inflation slowed last month. It looks like the market sentiment is recovering as riskier currencies are gaining upward momentum, while safer ones seem to be under pressure.

Euro Softer After Slew of Macroeconomic Reports

The euro fell against the US dollar as well as some other major currencies after the release of a slew of macroeconomic reports in Europe today. Market experts attributed the euro’s decline to the weaker-than-expected inflation data. Unemployment reports, on the other hand, were surprisingly good.

Euro Jumps as German Economic Sentiment Improves Sharply

The euro rallied today after the release of positive economic sentiment figures for Germany as well as the whole eurozone. But economists are worried that the eurozone economy is still extremely vulnerable and the improvement of the sentiment does not reflect the underline strength of the economic activity.

Euro Rallies on Positive Data, Remains Vulnerable Ahead of ECB

The euro rallied against most major currencies today. Some analysts attributed the rally to reports that Germany plans to stimulate its economies. Others pointed at today’s positive data as the main catalysts of the euro’s advance. The rally may be short-lived, though, as most market participants are not bullish on the euro ahead of this week’s European Central Bank monetary policy meeting.

Euro Mostly Little Changed Despite Dismal Manufacturing PMIs

The euro was little changed for the most part on Monday. While the currency fell versus some of its rivals, it managed to gain on the Great Britain pound. Overall, the euro’s performance was fairly good considering that manufacturing indices were rather bad in the most regions of the eurozone, except for France, as well as in the whole eurozone itself.

Euro Attempts to Hold Ground amid Clashing Fundamentals

The euro was relatively firm today, though the currency fell against some of its rivals, most notably the extremely strong Great Britain pound. Fundamentals clashed, with positive macro releases pushing the currency up but the dovish stance of the European central bank driving it down.
