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. It is worth noting that 32 members of the ruling party voted “No”. Discontent is growing among the Greeks. During all day in Athens people were protesting against the austerity measures. A number of clashes with the police were registered.

Industrial Production stats (+ 0.1%) and growing US key indexes also affected the European currency.
