TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The euro climbed to a one-week high against the dollar on Tuesday after first-quarter economic growth figures on the euro zone beat market expectations, dispelling some pessimism over the zone’s common currency.
Mixed U.S. data and caution ahead of a two-day Federal Reserve meeting pushed the dollar further away from a near two-year high. Euro zone economic growth accelerated to 0.4% in the first three months of 2019, recovering from a slump in the second half of last year, data showed on Tuesday.
