Political events will drive the financial markets today
The pair continues its downtrend today. Germany’s PPI came out better than expected, which had an impact on the markets. But Eurozone’s trade balance provided some support for the EUR. However, Fed’s meeting minutes contributed to the pair’s subsequent fall. At the end of the day, Trump’s political intentions provided some support for the USD.
At the same time, the EUR is under pressure due to political events in Europe, such as the elections in France and the Italian referendum.

In the medium term, gold is likely to come under pressure due to the USD increasing.
