Euro follows pound in strengthening against dollar

The euro on Monday closed up against the American dollar. Traders which opened short positions on the euro after the Brexit are starting to close them since they are tired of waiting for the currency to weaken. The GBP also began strengthening actively against the USD when it became clear that Theresa May is to take over David Cameron’s post of prime minister on 13th July.
