TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The euro slipped for a second day on Friday, on track for its biggest weekly loss of the year on the back of falling bond yields after the European Central Bank extended its bond buying well into next year.
Investors played the diverging monetary policy outlook view between the U.S. and Europe where the former is expected to raise interest rates again before the end of the year while the latter is not expected to raise interest rates in the coming years.
“The euro is vulnerable now that the highly-anticipated ECB QE tapering announcement is behind us,” said Kit Juckes, an FX strategist at Societe Generale in London.
