Current trend

The euro keeps falling against the US dollar. Yesterday the European currency lost more than 50 points and currently the pair is trading at 1.0925.

Though the agreement between the Greek government and its creditors was reached, the euro is still strongly affected by the “Greek issue”. Yesterday, the Greek Parliament agreed to the measures demanded under the agreement: 228 MPs voted for the deal, while 64 voted against.
