During last week the pair EUR/USD was grown rapidly. European currency gained over 150 points due to the tension over the situation in Greece and the US Fed report on the interest rates. We wonder if this positive dynamics for the Euro will continue this week.
The answer to this and many other questions will be given by the resolution of the Greek issue. As part the meeting of Eurogroup, scheduled for 22 June, the leaders of EU will have a special summit with the participation of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and prime-minister of Greece Mr. Tsipras. The stakes are high but it is unclear if the parties will finally reach the agreement.
Among macro-economic news scheduled for the release this week, traders shall pay special attention to the business activity index in the service and manufacturing sectors of France and Germany (Tuesday, 10:00 GMT+3), and those of Eurozone as a whole (Tuesday 11:00 GMT+3). The index will have a strong impact on the price of Euro; therefore, if the index is positive, price of Euro will go up.
