USD

The U.S. dollar is trading higher versus the majority of its peers in the latest round of trading. Investors are simply of the view that it is worth it for them to go long on the greenback due to the risks in the markets at the moment. The GBP/USD forex pair is trading lower in the latest round of trading by 0.06 percent at the $1.6614 level. The AUD/USD forex binary option has tumbled 0.06 percent to 90.27 U.S. cents.

EUR

The European single currency has managed to hold its ground this morning. It has managed to make inroads into the dollar and a number of its peers as data from Germany and other regions continue to impress. In addition, leaders of the Eurozone have done a lot to try and boost the region’s economies. Therefore, it is likely that the euro will continue making inroads into its peers as the trading day passes by.

We are seeing a lot of weakness for the pound in the latest round of trading. Investors simply feel that it is not worth it for them to go long on the pound sterling in the most recent trading, as there is a feeling that it is overvalued.
