The GDP numbers are almost worse looking due to the higher revisions but the fact that it wasn’t worse than expected is some comfort. Still, that shows a lower pather of growth and weather or not, that’s been the most recent theme with Eurozone data.
EURUSD is still under 1.2000 and trading near 1.1990.
