Despite the reduction in unemployment in Germany and the growth of GDP in the UK, the single currency and the pound are losing value. A lingering economic war and a recession in the global economy continue to bother financial markets, but not so much. Investors expect a positive result of the confrontation between China and the United States so defensive assets are becoming less attractive.
From October 1 to the end of the week, China celebrates National Day, and therefore low trading activity is expected.
