Current trend

USD is strengthening against EUR. The pair began to decline after the release of poor German Markit Composite PMI, which dropped to 52.7 points in October, while the forecast was expected to reach 54.8. EU Markit Composite PMI also did not meet the forecast, dropping to 52.7 points against the forecast of 53.9.

EUR is under pressure of the uncertainty with the Italian budget. The EU leadership was not satisfied with the statement by Italian Finance Minister Giovanni Tria, who noted that the government is ready to guarantee public debt at 2.4% and that this figure will not be exceeded in 2019. According to Brussels, an increase in the planned budget deficit from 0.8% to 2.4% can lead to an increase in Italian government debt. This year, the figure exceeded 130% of GDP, while according to EU rules, its size should not be more than 60%. During the day, the European Commission may reject the draft Italian budget and return it for processing. However, a fine or other sanctions are not expected, as they can strengthen the position of the Italian Euro-skeptics.

Today US October Markit Manufacturing and Service PMI will be released at 14:30 (GMT+2), the growth of indicators will affect the pair negatively.
