EUR/USD. September 24, 2020 – Euro is trading in the area of ​​local lows

On Thursday, the euro remains in a weak position and hovers around 1.1640. The pressure on the currency is exerting strong demand for the dollar as a «safe» asset amid a rise in the number of new cases of coronavirus in the world. According to experts, in Germany, Spain, Portugal and other countries, daily incidence records are being updated.

The dollar rallies even as the preliminary September Markit index of US services PMI declines. The indicator was 54.6 points against the previous value of 55.0. At the same time, the official data on this indicator reflected a slight improvement and showed an increase to 53.5 points from the previous 53.1.

At the same time, the euro was under pressure today from the data on the business climate from IFO in Germany. The index rose to just 93.4 points, while the forecasts assumed growth to 93.8. In the afternoon, you should pay attention to the data on applications for unemployment benefits in the United States. The number of applications is expected to decrease from 860 thousand to 845 thousand. If the forecasts justify themselves, the dollar will receive additional support, since such data signal a further recovery of the labor market.
