EUR/USD continues to stay close to the 1.17 level. In the Wednesday session, the pair is trading at 1.1697, up 0.11% on the day. On the release front, German Ifo Business Climate ticked lower to 101.7, just above the estimate of 101.6 points. In the US, New Home Sales is forecast to drop sharply to 669 thousand. On Thursday, Germany releases GfK Consumer Climate and the ECB will set its minimum bid rate. The US will release durable goods reports and unemployment claims.

The EU and the US are engaged in a nasty trade war, and the EU has promised to impose $20 billion in tariffs on US products if the Trump administration slaps $50 billion on European goods. Will the trade war worsen or will the sides pull back and make up? We could be a bit wiser after an EU delegation, led by European Commission President John-Claude Juckner, meets with President Trump at the White House on Wednesday. The euro has been fairly steady in recent weeks, despite the growing trade tensions. If, however, the trade talks between Trump and Juckner fall flat, the euro could lose ground.

With the global tariff war threatening to hurt German and eurozone exports, investors have been keeping a close eye on manufacturing data. There was positive news on Tuesday, as eurozone and German manufacturing PMIs continue to point to expansion. The German release improved to 57.3, easily beating the estimate of 55.5, while the eurozone reading of 55.1 was above the forecast of 54.7. Both indicators had dropped over six consecutive months and the July releases put an end to that nasty streak. Services PMIs were not as strong, as the German and eurozone releases missed their estimates.
