EURUSD moves higher on Russian delegation meeting with Ukraine

EURUSD

EURUSD on the 4-hour chart

The headline news that Russia proposes a delegation meeting with Ukrainian officials sent US stocks into positive territory and the EURUSD higher as well.

It is certainly an overture, but comes after surrounding the capitol city of Kyiv with troops and engaging in military action. Reports that the Ukraine land forces are imposing their own victories is favorable, but Putin is likely not ready to step back. I would expect he would ask to take over the government. At which point, the rubber will meet the road. I would not think that NATO- and Ukraine as well – would agree on a hand over.

Anyway, the  EURUSD 
EUR/USD

The EUR/USD is the currency pair encompassing the European Union’s single currency, the euro (symbol €, code EUR), and the dollar of the United States (symbol $, code USD). The pair’s rate indicates how many euros are needed in order to purchase one dollar. For example, when the EUR/USD is trading at 1.2, it means 1 euro is equivalent to 1.2 dollars.  Why the EUR/USD is the Most Popular Trading PairCompared to all tradable currencies, the euro (EUR) is the world’s second most traded currency, behind only the US dollar. This currency pair is the most traded and liquid currency pair on the market.As the most popular trading pair, the EUR/USD is a staple of every brokerage offering and often has some of the lowest spreads relative to other pairs. Ultimately, the currency follows the two most economic blocs in the world and sees the most volume for this reason.The EUR/USD has a wide range of factors that influence its rates. From the EUR side, economic data in the Eurozone as well as internal factors in the bloc can easily impact rates. Even small member states can effectively weigh on the EUR, as seen in Greece during bailout talks in the 2010s. Alternatively, developments in the United States and the Federal Reserve commonly affect the EUR/USD. Many examples include the bailouts during the Financial crisis, tax cuts during the Trump Administration, and Covid-19 relief measures, among others.
