Yesterday, the US Dollar strengthened against the Euro amid the publication of favorable data on Initial Jobless Claims in the US. The indicator came in at 262K against the forecast of 275K.
Current Account of the eurozone grew to 41.4 billion. The indicator has a limited effect on the market, but, in general, favorable data can support the European currency.
