Euro Rallies on Weak USD as Global Economic Growth Looks Positive for 2020

The euro has rallied as the USD’s strength has weakened over the past week or two. The USD slid to a six-month low on New Years Eve which set up the euro and other trade-sensitive currencies to edge up against it.

Threat of No-Deal Brexit Causes GBP to EUR Rate to Tumble

The pound to euro rate wasn’t full of festive cheer after it fell to a four-week low on Monday. The pair experienced a surge in value in the immediate aftermath of the general election. However, optimism inspired by the Conservative’s huge majority, and subsequent mandate to “get Brexit done”, has since subsided. This has been replaced by fresh concerns that the UK could be on course for a no-deal Brexit, following the government’s decision to make it illegal to request an extension to EU...
