By: XE Market Analysis

EUR-USD made time in the low-to-mid 1.09s amid a sense that recent euro gains are starting to stall. There is still no resolution to the Greek situation, and the ECB's money printing presses are hard at work, while the Fed is still generally accepted as being on course to tighten policy this year, even if not as soon as the June FOMC.

The dollar found its feet and traded firmer during the pre-European open session in Asia. EUR-USD settled to the low 1.09s during Asian trade after reaching a six-day peak of 1.0971 before capping out on Monday.

The dollar headed broadly lower in N.Y. trade on Monday, as its recent run-up continued to unwind to a degree.

By: New_Deal_democrat

Hopefully Hale Stewart and I will be adding podcasts to our repertoire of posts here at XE.
