Event risks out of the way, EUR/USD resumes its slide

View Comments

Most of the news events of the day are out of the way with only jobless claims working against the greenback. Upbeat worker productivity data, a fairly downcast take on the European economy from Trichet and an improved service sector of the US economy are all helping underpin the greenback. EUR/USD has fallen as far as 1.4425 before stabilizing, working through strong bids in the 1.4435/40 area.

EUR/JPY has come under renewed pressure in the wake of the data with soft US equities perhaps contributing.

Oil inventories data is seen as a bit flukey this week owing to the hurricane (and the WSJ story questioning the validity of the data in general). They are due at 10:30. Oil is firm today as the weather map shows a conga line of hurricanes working their way across the Atlantic.
