Euro Mixed as Bulls and Bears Face Off

Euro is mixed in Forex trading today, and bulls and bears are facing off, looking at the 1.35 level against the US dollar as an important dividing line.

Loonie Experiences Mixed Trading Day

The Canadian dollar had a mixed trading session today as fundamentals were confusing and did not give a clear direction for the currency to go. Over the longer term, the loonie still maintains its bullish bias against the US dollar and the euro and remains flat versus the Japanese yen.

Loonie Gains Ahead of GDP Report as Current Account Deficit Narrows

The Canadian dollar rallied today ahead of tomorrow’s report about gross domestic product as the nation’s current account deficit shrank last quarter. The currency remains strong, though it was trading sideway’s lately.
