TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro edged higher on Friday and looked set to break a six-week losing streak, supported by a drop in Italian bond yields after a revived coalition deal between two anti-establishment parties pulled the country back from snap elections.

With worries that political turmoil in Italy would roil markets receding, investors have — after strong inflation data this week — shifted their focus back to predicting when will the European Central Bank raise interest rates.

Annual inflation in the 19 countries sharing the euro rose to 1.9 percent in May from 1.2 percent in April, well above expectations for a 1.6 percent increase.
