Euro is still high, as greenback slides

On Friday, the common currency was still high because the evergreen buck declined and trade worries didn’t recede.

The currency pair EUR/USD managed to ascend by 0.26% reaching 1.1633 because German and French business activity in June turned out to be higher than anticipated, relieving worries of a slowdown in the European Union.

In addition to this, the Australian dollar managed to ascend. The currency pair AUD/USD gained by about 0.65% reaching 0.7425,
