Euro Soars on US-China Trade Deal Optimism, Later Crashes

The euro today rallied to its daily highs in the early American session after news emerged that China and the US were keen on signing a phase one deal. The EUR/USD currency pair today rallied higher after the release of the minutes of the ECB Governing Council‘s October meeting in which the board called for unity among member countries.
The EUR/USD currency pair today rallied from a low of 1.1070 in the early European session to a high of 1.1096 in the early American session but had crashed back below its daily lows at the time of writing.
The currency pair traded with a bearish bias during the Asian session as inventors weighed the impact of the US-China tensions. The pair spiked higher at the start of the European session after Reuters reported that German exports to the US grew in Q3, citing data from the Federal Statistical Office; this is likely to anger President Donald Trump who wants a narrower trade deficit with Germany.

The currency pair’s future performance is likely to be affected by tomorrow’s multiple euro area releases as well as geopolitical events.
