Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) likely to be determined by trader reaction
The Euro is trading nearly flat on Tuesday as investors await fresh news about Brexit and a slew of U.S. economic data. Traders are also saying that the single-currency is being supported by economic surveys showing tentative signs of recovery in the Euro Zone economy but warned that signals from the fixed income markets could continue to be the source of concerns.
At 12:23 GMT, the EUR/USD is trading 1.1304, down 0.0011 or -0.09%.
Traders are saying a stronger-than-forecast German business confidence survey on Monday was buoying the single currency, but German 10-year bund yields remained below zero and that worried global stock markets despite some steadying on Tuesday.
