USD Significantly StrengthenedThe major currency pair weakened pretty much at the end of last week. Early in the last full trading week of the year, EURUSD is trading at 1.1084.
Several reports published by the USA last Friday provided great support to the American currency. First of all, it’s the final GDP reading in the third quarter of 2019, which showed the same 2.1% q/q as expected without any surprise. Secondly, numbers on the Personal Income and Spending in November were quite impressive.
The Personal Income showed +0.5% m/m after adding 0.1% m/m in the previous month and against the expected reading of +0.3% m/m. Meanwhile, the Personal Spending was +0.4% m/m, the same as expected, after being +0.3% m/m the month before.
