Slight EUR Recovery, Jackson Hole Later This Week & Markets Round-Up
Created 08/19/2019 at 09:04AM
EUR and NOK are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.14% and 0.14% vs the dollar while NZD and AUD are the top losers, down -0.28% and -0.19% vs the dollar.
The EUR steadied a little after its biggest weekly fall (last week) in almost two months as risk sentiments improved. Hopes of a probable fiscal stimulus by Germany is also adding to the investor's optimism. That said, the market optimism is likely to remain capped ahead of the speech by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell at the Jackson Hole Symposium later this week.

The European equities were trading firm with the FTSE up +0.91% at 7181.69, DAX up +1.08% at 11687.2, and CAC up +0.8% at 5343.15.
