Euro is strengthening in the beginning of the week but still remains under pressure

September 29, 2015

Current trend

The Euro is strengthening in the beginning of the week but still remains under pressure from a number of factors. The pair negatively reacted to commentaries by the Managing Director of the IMF Christine Lagarde who stated that the world GDP growth for the next couple of years is hard to predict. The growth would remain above 3% but recovery is sluggish.

The Euro is supported, on the other hand, by lowered speculations regarding the interest rate hike in the US.
