Euro rebounds on US data, hemmed in by German business sentiment

NEW YORK, Oct 27 (Reuters) – The euro recovered lost ground
in rangebound trade on Monday, boosted by weaker-than-expected
U.S. housing data that softened the blow to the euro zone common
currency from news that German business morale fell.

The German data had taken the shine off better-than-expected
stress-test results for European banks issued on Sunday but
widely leaked at the end of last week.

Euro rises on bank stress tests report, short-covering

NEW YORK, Oct 24 (Reuters) – The euro rose on Friday ahead
of an official report on the health of the euro zone’s main
banks as investors continued a trend of covering their
short-positions leading to buying of the currency against the
U.S. dollar.

Despite Friday’s weakness, the dollar is on track to close
the week with a gain. Concerns about the first diagnosed case of
Ebola in New York City, which stifled the dollar’s rally late
Thursday, have waned, strategists said.

Dollar rises on return to riskier assets

NEW YORK, Oct 23 (Reuters) – The dollar rallied on Thursday
as investors plowed cash back into riskier asset classes,
underpinned by promising U.S. data and stronger-than-expected
manufacturing reports in Europe and China.

The dollar rose 0.10 percent against a basket of major
currencies, with the U.S. Dollar Index at 85.83. It
benefited from both rising U.S. Treasury yields, which reflected
an easing of investor concerns after last week’s phalanx of
selling, and a continuing U.S. equities rally.
