The EUR/USD pair extends its upside trend for the third session in a row, keeping its positions above the level of 1.19 at the last working day of the week. Yesterday the greenback came under fresh selling pressure after the Senate delayed a vote on the highly anticipated US tax cut legislation, which, in turn, had a positive effect on the major currency pair. Moreover, seems that the retreat of the euro in the cross with the pound, caused by optimism surrounding Brexit, eased somewhat that also remains positive factor for the shared currency. Looking ahead, today the US will publish ISM manufacturing PMI report, which will likely hog the limelight during the NA session, while any price actions of the US dollar will remain as the key determinant for the pair during this trading session.
