    EURUSD: the euro’s upwards trend continues

    Brexit is dominating the Forex market this week. The pound is under intense scrutiny by market participants. On Thursday, it shed 2.3% against the greenback to reach 1.2735. This drop was caused by reports of UK Brexit Minister Dominic Raab’s resignation. Another piece of news that took its toll on the pound was that of the prospect of Prime Minister Theresa May facing a no-confidence vote. The single currency dropped to 1.1271 against the dollar on the back of this report, although euro bulls quickly recovered these losses in Europe and pushed on to a new session high of 1.1362.
