The euro is irreversible, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said in a newspaper interview to be published on Saturday when asked if the single currency will still be there in 10 years. "Yes, the euro is irreversible," Scholz told the Rheinische Post. "With the Meseberg agreements we are further building the house of Europe," he said.
Investing.com – The U.S. dollar was on track to post a weekly loss against its rivals as mixed U.S. economic data weighed on sentiment and ongoing euro strength curbed upside momentum.
The U.S. dollar rallied to its best level in a year against its Canadian rival Friday morning, thanks to sluggish Canadian economic data that underlined the fragility of Canada’s economy. The ICE U.S. Dollar Index (IFUS:DX-Y.NYB) meanwhile, was down 0.2% at 94.535. Friday morning’s Canadian data showed May inflation at 0.05%, underperforming the forecast of 0.5%, while core inflation slowed to 1.9% for the 12 months ended in May, from 2.1% previously.
By Richard Leong NEW YORK (Reuters) - The euro climbed on Friday as traders were encouraged by improved regional economic growth data and new assurances by Italian politicians that their nation would not leave the single currency. The euro registered a weekly gain of nearly 0.5 percent against the dollar, reversing the prior week's 1.35 percent drop tied to the European Central Bank's hint it would hold interest rates through the summer of 2019. The euro's advance, together with a rebound in commodity-linked and emerging market currencies, pressured the dollar which ended lower on the week.
The euro remained higher on Friday, as the U.S. dollar fell and trade concerns lingered. EUR/USD rose 0.26% to 1.1633 as of 11:24 AM ET (15:24 GMT) after French and German business activity in June came in higher than expected, easing concerns of a slowdown in the eurozone. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, was down 0.19% to 94.36.
Greek bond yields dropped on Friday after euro zone finance ministers agreed a plan to ease Greece's heavy debt burden and allow it to stand its own feet after it officially leaves a bailout programme in August. Euro zone finance ministers extended maturities and deferred interest of a major part of their loans to Greece and agreed a big cash injection to ensure Athens is able manage a debt level that many feared was unsustainable. "This had been anticipated but it is a positive in terms of the debt relief to Greece and the cash buffer that they will be afforded, which is important because it provides a safety net and allows them to follow the path of Portugal post-bailout," said Rabobank strategist Richard McGuire.
Euro zone finance ministers and leaders will seek agreement in the next eight days on a series of reforms to make the currency area more resilient to future crises. Below are ideas for new powers for the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), the euro zone bailout fund for states with a firepower of 500 billion euros (438.5 billion pounds), discussed by finance ministers and to be considered by a European Union summit on June 29.
The pair shot higher during the yesterday’s session after reaching its major support level at 1.15 level. The British Pound shot higher during the yesterday’s session breaking above the 1.32 level and then continued towards the 1.3250 level. If it breaks above the 1.33 level, then it will be a very big development and could send the British Pound much higher.

Based on the early price action, the direction of the EUR/USD on Friday will be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1611.
Euro zone economic growth likely put in a decent performance in the second quarter with private businesses growing faster than expected in June, but trade worries knocked manufacturing growth to the weakest in 18 months, a private survey showed. Just last week the ECB signaled that its crisis-era bond buying programme will end this year and that interest rates will rise in the second half of 2019. IHS Markit's Euro Zone Composite Flash Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), seen as a good guide to economic growth, climbed in June to 54.8 from 54.1 in the previous month and above 53.9 predicted in a Reuters poll.
The Euro rallied significantly during the trading session on Thursday after initially dipping towards the 1.15 handle. That’s an area that has been important more than once, and it is a major level on the longer-term charts. Because of this, a bit of a relief rally is not much of a surprise.
