Yesterday’s economic data allowed the EUR/USD pair to break through the resistance level and fix a new weekly high near the 1.1250 level. The growth was possible after the US Dollar fell yesterday. The overall sentiment remained positive for the currency pair at the Asian session amid trade negotiations between the US and China. Recent reports of trade talks indicate that Trump will soon be talking to Chinese officials. Even the Chinese colleague calls for a faster settlement instead of a long Cold War. It is noteworthy that the trade problems that arose several years ago significantly influenced the various moods in the business world. The USD index may go further up against the background of positive data on the consumer price index for April.
