EUR: Single currency strengthens against USD and GBP

By Ricky Bean December 28th, 2017

Against the US dollar the single currency got back into the $1.19 level, seldom seen in the past few months. The euro also strengthened against the pound as a quiet day for the markets rolled along. What economic data releases there were came out positively for two of the EU27’s four biggest economies: French unemployment fell and Spanish retail sales rose, both far ahead of forecasts.

There are no significant data releases today.
