Analysis and Recommendations:

The EUR/GBP is trading at 0.7846 down a few pips off by 0.0009 as the euro lost a bit of its momentum.

Eurozone current account came in at +15.7bn; while the trade balance came in at +10.5bn partially driven by an m/m export increase of 2.4%. Finland’s foreign minister confirmed that they have prepared for break‐up scenarios; but later suggested that his comments were misrepresented in the media.

There was no eco data in the UK, so the movement here was just market fluctuations and in response to the euro, but there was little activity anywhere in the markets today.
