EUR/USD weaker on risk aversion

Markets are tilted to the risk-off trade on Tuesday amidst increasing concerns regarding the US government shutdown and the debt ceiling negotiations. Data wise, the most relevant release will be German Factory Orders, expected to have expanded at a monthly pace of 1.2% in August. Across the pond, the speeches by Pianalto and Plosser will be in the limelight. “In general the euro has also been well supported recently and today’s German factory orders might add further support underlining that the euro zone economy continues to improve”, suggested analyst Arne L. Rasmussen at Danske Bank.
