Current trend

Despite falling in the beginning of the week, at yesterday’s close the pair gained back the losses and is now trading at 1.1260.

Investors should also pay attention to the latest figures on the consumer price index, which are due today at 12 pm (GMT +3). Economists expect an increase by 0.3%, which would positively affect the Euro.
