EUR/USD. October 05, 2020 – Euro continues to move to new highs At the beginning of the week, the EUR/USD pair managed to recover to the level of 1.1760, retracing the weak data on the US labor market, published last Friday. At the end of September, the US economy was able to create only 661 thousand new jobs outside agriculture, while the last month was marked by an increase of 1.489 million. Analysts predicted an increase of 850 thousand. At the same time, the unemployment rate in the United States in September fell from 8.4% to 7.9%. The current quote for the pair is 1.1745. Some support for the dollar, as a defensive asset, was provided by the news of a positive test for coronavirus from US President D. Trump. On the eve of the presidential elections, Trump's illness could seriously harm the candidacy of the incumbent, who, as you know, is already lagging behind his opponent Joe Biden. In addition to the situation with Trump's disease, investors are awaiting the decision of the US Congress on a new package of fiscal assistance to the population and companies affected by the pandemic. As soon as the stimulus is agreed upon, the pressure on the US dollar will intensify, which will lead to further growth of the European currency.
