The Euro has held onto profits against the USD since last Friday after yesterday’s favorable data and ahead of today’s mid-term elections.
Swiss jobs data and German industrial production figures helped to underpin EUR/USD into the New York close, and the uplift has been maintained through the Asian session so far.
US mid-term elections are scheduled for today, and the market is poised for headlines that may stem from early results.
The US Dollar stays under the pump despite Treasury yields adding a few basis points in the North American trade, followed by a couple more in Asia today. The benchmark 10-year note is again yielding over 4.20%.
The US mid-terms will be watched, but the market will eagerly await Thursday’s US CPI data.
