TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The euro edged higher on Friday, on track for its biggest weekly rise in a month as investors switched focus from the euro zone’s political concerns to its brightening economic outlook.
Appetite for the single currency was also supported by strong Chinese trade data for September and a weakening dollar following cautious comments from U.S. policymakers.
“If the European economic recovery continues and the ECB pushes ahead with policy normalisation, we will see the euro trade above 1.30 within 18 months or so,” said Kit Juckes, an FX strategist at Societe Generale in London.
