EURUSD Technical Analysis

0 59

The Euro is spiking to the upside at the mid-session on Friday as buyers took advantage of the thin holiday volume. The move may have been fueled by end-of-the-year position-squaring or possibly the news that China would raise its Euro weightings in its key Yuan Index basket.

At 16:44 GMT, the EUR/USD is trading 1.1374, up 0.0049 or +0.44%. The Invesco CurrencyShares Euro Trust ETF (FXE) is at $105.70, up $0.48 or +0.46%.

China will adjust the weightings of a key Yuan index basket in 2022, the country’s foreign exchange trading platform said on Friday, in a move traders and analysts said would help ensure the Yuan’s value does not act as a brake on China’s exports.

Starting on January 1, the China Foreign Exchange Trade System (CFETS) will increase the U.S. Dollar’s weighting in the CFETS currency basket to 19.88% from 18.79% and raise the Euro’s weighting to 18.45% from 18.15%, according to an online statement.
