Fxstreet.com (Edinburgh) - Shares in the US markets are closing the quarter with gains on Friday, propped up by rebalancing month-end flows and better-than-estimated US consumer sentiment. The greenback is trading in the upper end of today’s range, hovering over 83.50 after climbing as high as the boundaries of 83.60. The DowJones is losing 0.15% while the Nasdaq and the S&P500 are advancing 0.47% and 0.14%, respectively.

Markets in Euroland closed in a ‘sea of red’ after jitters regarding the probable next steps of the US monetary policy re-emerged amongst traders. The IBEX35 was the worst performer, down 1.04%, followed by the CAC40, 0.62% and the FTSE100, 0.45%. After piercing the key resistance at 1.3100, the single currency plummeted to the area of 1.2990 just to stabilize later around the current area of 1.3000/10.
