The European currency continues to show purely technical growth. The most important thing is that the growth is almost recoilless, which is very easy to work out. There is still no reason to assume that the strengthening of the European currency is somehow connected with the EU itself. Most likely, traders continue to reduce short positions on the instrument, which leads to the growth of the euro. However, sooner or later this growth of the euro will be completed, after which the descending trend with high probability will resume. Only Donald Trump himself, who first bargained for himself the best trading conditions with Mexico and the European Union, can only hinder this, now he puts pressure on China, Canada, and Turkey, and in the future may affect other countries. In addition, and the US dollar in recent weeks is falling against the euro, which can not but rejoice the leader of America. To prevent the further strengthening of the dollar, Trump can already standard methods for him. Scandal, for example. Recently, the media has been discussing the topic of Trump's relations with Russia, which influenced the outcome of the presidential election. Thus, any new information on this matter can disbelieve traders in the advisability of new purchases of the American currency. Although in recent months, the dollar has not been bought only by the lazy, and the fundamental reasons were not always present. Thus, it is Donald Trump who continues to rule the ball in the foreign exchange market. And we advise market participants to continue with increased interest in any statements by the US president and his publications on social networks.
