Looking at the euro currency (EUR) on the above daily EUR/USD MT 4 price action chart, the world’s most liquid currency exchange rate has come under renewed pressure as a break lower has been confirmed.
There is not a lot on the economic calendar to spark price action volatility with either the euro currency or U.S. dollar (USD). The Eurozone will release monthly industrial production data. The United States will release monthly headline and core factory gate price data. This is known as the producer price index (PPI).
The United Kingdom has no economic data releases today but Bank of England and Monetary Policy Member Andrew G Haldane will speak. He is the central bank’s chief economist.
Canada has nothing on their economic calendar and heading into the Asian trade session, later today, Japan will release their monthly tertiary activity.
With the lack of economic data being released today, the sensitive linked euro currency will react to ongoing Brexit headlines as well as Covid-19 (coronavirus) news. The United Kingdom and the European Union have failed to close the gap on the free trade agreement ahead of the 15 October deadline.
