As the first week of October kicked off last week, traders witnessed a number of volatile jumps in the worlds 2 primary currencies: the EUR and USD. Optimism appeared to be on the rise in America while Europe was giving off signals of a lagging economy. The USD had pared a moderate percentage of its previous losses until employment data in the US hampered those gains and sent the EUR flying high. As a result, every other currency in the forex market was impacted in a similar way since these currencies have the ability to influence world prices. The question remains: Will this week's data calm the market, or simply add fuel to the flames?
