USD down, stocks up
European markets improve face and show significant rises. The DAX rises 1.80% and the CAC 40 1.20%. Wall Street futures point to gains of around 1.2%. This better tone helps keep the dollar somewhat weak. The DXY falls again and trades just above the weekly low in the 102.80 area. Treasury and German bond yields rise on Friday.
The Friday there will be no US impact data. so the focus could continue on what happens on Wall Street. The preliminary estimate of consumer confidence from the European Commission for May will be released from the Eurozone.
The EUR/USD trades with a slight gain, which leads it to have the fifth rise considering the last six days. The very short-term technical picture remains positive for the Euro, although it will need to break above 1.0600 to enable further rally, with the next target at 1.0640/45, where May is.
