  • Western Union Business Solutions - Euro marks fourth consecutive session of strong performance
    markets currencies and additional regions germane to finance Thursday saw Finland elect to approve increased powers to the euro zone bailout fund which bolstered the strength of the euro The proposal that Finland supported was first agreed to by leaders in the euro zone in July but it requires approval by all nations parliaments in order to be passed With 10 of the 17 member eurogroup having ratified a bailout fund there is no question that Europe is clearing each hurdle slowly and inching closer to a broader and more ambitious plan to expand their resources and prevent contagion currency research director Kathy Lien with GFT Forex told Reuters The euro s strength also benefited from inflation rising in Germany and a byproduct of that metric is likely to be relaxed pressure on the European Central Bank to decrease interest rates Finance ministers from the euro zone are likely to conduct additional meetings next month to conduct discussions about the sovereign debt crisis in Greece and how funding from the emergency bailout trance will be disbursed should inspectors and officials from the International Monetary Fund the European Union and the European Central Bank deliver a positive assessment of Greece s adherence to conditions and terms of the bailout Lien underscored the importance of euro zone officials publicly acknowledging progress with the deal for Greece to receive the bailout aid and avoid a default The optimism might fall short which would impact the rally that the euro has enjoyed Although currencies and equities have held on to their gains the price action in the market suggests that the patience of investors is wearing thin Lien told Reuters Concerns about the potential default and how it will damage the banking and finance system in Europe have been a driver of the more than 5 percent drop that the common currency of the European Union has endured thus far this month The euro s retreat might prompt assets considered risky to find support from demand by money managers who have manipulated their portfolios as a strategy to compensate for some assets loss in value The dollar index a metric that monitors the strength of the U S dollar when compared to six counterpart currencies indicated the greenback fell in value Wednesday as compared to its value late Tuesday Category Industry News Share Foreign Exchange Services for Business With a focus on payment services Western Union Business Solutions enables businesses of all sizes to send funds internationally through our global payment solutions See our available FX payment services Related posts Euro marks eight consecutive losing sessions against greenback The common currency of the European Union was hurtling toward an eighth consecutive trading session Euro marks two consecutive sessions of gains against dollar The shared currency of the European Union marked two consecutive days of gains against the U S doll Euro climbs for second consecutive session The shared currency of the European Union notched a second consecutive trading session of rallies on Industry News
