On Forex, EUR/USD is still at the same level. The pair is trying to go up, which is evident from the long daily candlestick shadows, but it’s hindered by the external background. Investors start selling the euro towards the end of the day. Today quite a large block of macroeconomic data will be released – that can serve as an impetus for the pair.
