  • However, the Euro is failing to benefit, with pairs like EUR/USD and EUR/GBP falling back.

Traders more confident

Traders are becoming more confident that US President Joe Biden will be able to push a sizeable stimulus package through Congress and that coronavirus vaccinations in the US are back on track – benefiting assets like stocks that are seen as more risky.

However, the Euro is failing to benefit, with EUR/GBP falling and EUR/USD dropping as well.
