The Euro Dollar Battle


Oct.23.2014

It seems like the temporary rebound is over and Ms. USA is back on track with the up-trend she started end of July. Better than expected US data also contributed to the market psychology; US jobless claims bounced to 283K in Oct 17 week, little below 269K expected.

At the same time, we started Thursday with  some hot market moving events today that boosted up Mr. Euro a well, so the EUR/USD pair are literally challenging one another on the forex dance floor. First, French Flash Manufacturing PMI was out better than expected at 8 am GMT, followed by German Flash Manufacturing PMI was out better than expected, but UK monthly Retail Sales didn't meet expectations.

Who do you think is going to win the battle; Mr. Euro or Ms. USA?

Let’s not forget that the euro zone economic summit starts today as well. US Flash Manufacturing PMI is out at 2:45 pm GMT. At 3:30 PM BOC Gov Poloz Speaks and finally at 10:45 PM New Zealand’s trade balance is out.
