After Friday’s excitement with Non Farm Payroll and the subsequent volatility we have seen across all the currency pairs both immediately after the news, and continuing into the trading session this morning, today is a very quiet one for fundamental news on the economic calendar for the euro to dollar, as is the rest of the week. There are no planned news releases for the US, and the only news of any significance in Europe were the German Factory orders which came in flat and on target at 0.0%, indicating that orders in April held up, and suggesting once again that perhaps the worst of the recession is over.

With no fundamental news in the US, the only item of note is a speech by Federal Reserve Governor Daniel Tarullo, who is due to deliver a speech titled “Financial Regulation in the Wake of the Crisis” at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, in Washington DC. Following the address, audience  questions are expected which may introduce some unexpected volatility into the currency markets as a result, with unscripted questions often leading to ‘off the cuff’ answers which are often more revealing.
