Another Bad Week for Euro?

The euro was no feeling well recently. The Forex market was in a risk aversion mode, driving traders away from the currency. What this week holds for the euro? In fact, market analysts think nothing good.

US Dollar Gains on Downbeat Data Out of Europe

European data released earlier is disappointing, and concerns about the situation are prompting gains for the US dollar. Even though the US economy is recovering at a sluggish pace, and even though the sequester has hit, the US dollar is still in a stronger position than its European counterparts.

German Economic Data Provides Only Small Support for Euro

German economic data has provided a bit of a boost to the euro today, but the gains are more modest than many might expect. Even though the macroeconomic picture appears to be getting better in Germany, it’s not quite enough to overcome the other problems in the eurozone.

Euro Holds Its Own after Industrial Production Numbers

Indications that the worst really is over for the eurozone continue to roll in, despite worries about Spain and Italy. The latest industrial production data supports the idea that the eurozone economy is strengthening, albeit modestly.

Euro a Little Lower as it Consolidates ahead of ECB

Euro appears to be in consolidation mode right now, and is a little bit lower against other majors right now as a result. It’s also not helping that some doubts, helped by renewed concerns about sovereign debt, are creeping into the picture.

CAD Rallies vs. EUR on Political Concerns, Falls vs. USD & JPY

The Canadian dollar rallied against the euro today as political turmoil in Spain undermined the strength of the shared European currency. The loonie erased its gains versus the US dollar and fell against the Japanese yen after reaching the highest level since May 2010.

Political Concerns Halt Euro Rally

Did Forex traders get too excited about the euro recently? That’s what many are wondering as political concerns halt the recent euro rally and send the 17-nation currency plunging. Political concerns in Spain and Italy, as well as speculation about the upcoming European Central Bank meeting, are weighing on the euro today.

Euro Mixed in Forex Trading Today

Euro is mixed in forex trading today, following the latest Bank of Japan announcement, as well as the latest Spanish bond offering and the expectations that Germany and France will announce joint proposals for euro reform by May.

Euro Gains as Spanish Auction Deemed a Success

Euro is gaining today as the latest Spanish auction is considered a success. There is optimism about what’s next for the eurozone right now, and that is translating into gains for the euro, which some think could rise to the 1.3400 level against the US dollar fairly soon.

Euro Drops after Firming Earlier

Euro managed to firm against the US dollar earlier in trading, but now the euro is lower in general as concerns about the global economy come into focus and as risk assets lose their attractiveness.
