The euro was quite stable this morning. Market participants are waiting for the euro zone GDP statistics. Data are likely to show that modest growth persisted. A median forecast suggests a 0.4% growth rate in the second quarter just like in the first quarter. Analysts also say that France and Italy are likely to report slower growth. This would underline uneven recovery in the single currency area, where Germany leads compared to other key economies.
