On the Forex market, EUR/USD failed to fix above 1.3380. Now the dollar is going up in light of the data for US GDP. According to mass media, in the second quarter of 2013 the actual growth of the USA’s GDP was 2.5 percent whereas analysts expected the figure to be 2.2 percent. The dollar hike may let up already at 1.32.
