Welcome to Tuesday, people! Here’s your markets update ahead of the European trading session.
A chance to trade the USD
The United States will release durable goods orders at 15:30 MT time on June 27. What is this strange thing and why does it matter to Forex traders?
To keep it simple, durable goods orders represent just another important piece of the US economic statistics. Durable goods are goods like automobiles, tools, etc. that have a long term of service. If manufacturers order a lot of such goods, it means that they are increasing their activity and will produce more.
