EUR/USD: US Existing Home Sales


The EUR/USD currency pair revealed a modest reaction on the US economic reports showing some positive changes in the US existing home sales. The Euro lost against the US Dollar just 4 base points to continue slipping further into the 1.1770 area.

The National Association of Realtors reported on Friday that the US existing home sales gained 0.7% to a seasonally adjusted yearly rate of 5.39M in September. The increase was sustained by dissipation of the effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, though an enduring dearth of available properties kept weighing on overall activity. Moreover, weak affordability is likely to keep prices high confusing considerable buyers' interest throughout the US.
