The Euro has had a really good run of form over the past few months, even with the great deal of problems the European Central Bank faces, nothing seems to be weakening the rate. One concern for those looking to sell Euros in the near future is that once the U.S election is out of the way and there is a little more certainty surrounding the Dollar (assuming Trump does not win), there is a chance that we may start to see a flow of money from the Euro to the Dollar, potentially making the Euro a little weaker.
Let’s not forget the Trump factor though, he is not out of the race yet and this bodes for a very volatile week ahead for all exchange rates.
EUR/USD is the currency pairing that is traded the most around the world, so when we have good data for the Dollar the Euro usually weakens and visa-versa.
As soon as the U.S election is finished, the media will also have to find something else to fill the pages once again so I would be surprised if they did not start to dig dirt on situations in Europe once again. With Italian banks, Greece, Deutsche Bank and political problems to name but a few.
Expectations as we move forward are for an interest rate hike in the U.S in December following the Federal Reserve statement last night and this may further add to the chance of Euro weakness.
Eurozone unemployment is due out this morning and there is an expectation for a slight improvement from 10.1% to 10% precisely.
Should this be the case, there may be a small improvement in the strength of the Euro in advance of what will be a big day for U.K economic data and Sterling exchange rates too.

I have used Foreign currency direct on two occasions, both were stressful times for me but Daniel and staff were wonderful. Every step was explained and all queries answered fully and swiftly. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone for an excellent service.
I decided to use this company after reading many blogs by Daniel Wright on the forecast of Sterling. He always seemed to get his predictions right and also seemed to have not only very good knowledge but a passion for the industry he is in. Daniel was not only informative but patient and gave us options on the lead up to our currency exchange.
I only have praise for the way this company make the stressful experience of Forex a simple process. Difficult to be specific but there is always the personal touch. Recently, with the BREXIT hysteria the dealers must have been very busy but Daniel Wright was always available or never failed to ring me when requested.
A totally reliable and trustworthy service. I have used them on three occasions now and my money has always come over on the agreed date at the agreed rate. Daniel Wright is a pleasure to deal with -patient, personable and professional.
