Today, AUD struggled with the partially worse economic reports which led EUR to gain impulsive momentum having mixed economic report results. Today, EUR Spanish Manufacturing PMI report was published with a decrease to 55.2 from the previous figure of 55.8 which was expected to be at 55.7, Italian Manufacturing PMI showed an increase to 59.0 from the previous figure of 57.4 which was expected to be at 57.7, French Final Manufacturing PMI report showed a slight increase to 58.4 which was expected to be unchanged at 58.1, German Final Manufacturing PMI report showed a slight decrease to 61.1 which was expected to be unchanged at 61.2, and EUR Final Manufacturing PMI was published unchanged at 59.6.
