Euro Heads to End Friday Weakest Despite Decent Macro Indicators

The euro was heading to end Friday as the weakest major currency on the Forex market. The shared 19-nation currency fell even against the US dollar, despite rising initially after the release of terrible US nonfarm payrolls. At the same time, the euro is currently trying to rebound versus the New Zealand dollar.

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 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 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 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 Stable Despite Poor Eurozone Data, ECB Policy Outlook

The euro fell a bit versus some rivals but was about flat versus most of them on Tuesday. That was a surprisingly good performance considering that eurozone macroeconomic data released during Tuesday’s session was universally bad. The monetary policy outlook was also negative for the currency.

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 Rallies Higher Despite Italian Political Uncertainty

The euro today rallied higher into the early European session despite rumours that the Italian government would call for an early election on October 23rd. The EUR/USD currency pair fell after the release of weak German trade balance data for June, which shrunk more than expected.
