EUR/USD

During the Asian trading, the euro has lost some of its profits since yesterday. Investors have accepted excellent data from Friday (on the state of the US economy) in a way that has boosted their preference for investing in more risky instruments. This pushed the prices of stocks and downgraded bond prices, or raised yields on long-term bonds. This made the dollar stop the solid growth of the euro that was recorded yesterday on the account of the dismissal of the saga of the government’s assimilation in Italy. At around 8:40 am, the euro is exchanged for $ 1.1692, which at the beginning of the European session shows a weakening of the euro by 0.05%. At 9:55 am, an indicator of economic activity in the German service sector will be published for May and five minutes later and an aggregate indicator at the level of the euro zone. At 16:00, an indicator of economic activity in the US service sector will be announced by the Institute for Supply Management. At the same time, a (JOLTs) report on the number of new jobs in the United States is expected.
