TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro held at a three-day high on Thursday as concerns about a global trade war eased after the United States and the European Union agreed to begin talks on lowering tariffs.

Following talks on Wednesday with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, U.S. President Donald Trump said they had agreed to “work together toward zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods.”

However, the moves in the single currency was far more subdued than equities, where auto stocks surged 2 percent, and bond yields edged higher as investors waited for the fine print to emerge on the trade discussions.
