Euro-Zone GDP data released Tuesday showed another quarter of strong growth. Sentiment indicators released at the same time were disappointing but still pointed to economic growth in the region remaining robust.
In response, EURUSD and EURJPY firmed although EURGBP was modestly weaker. Currently, the markets seem to be taking a breather but the dominant trend still seems to be a weak US Dollar alongside relative strength in both the Euro and the British Pound.
Although off their highs, stock markets continue to look firm although government bond yields have started to climb.
