What Influences The Exchange Rate Of EUR/USD?
When trading the EUR/USD currency pair, the price will show how much USD you need to trade EUR. The EUR/USD pair is popular among traders as it is the world’s most liquid currency pair, and has a low bid-ask spread.
Due to its popularity, the pair is heavily traded rendering it quite volatile - an enticing opportunity for traders to earn big winnings.
The Euro and the American Dollar are driven by economic health and interest rates in their respective regions. Countries in the Eurozone all use the Euro as their official currency, whereas the US Dollar has been adopted by some other countries such as Ecuador and Panama.
The main factors that influence the EUR/USD forecast are:
Economic health in the US and the EU:
- If the US’s economy grows faster than Europe, the dollar will gain strength in relation to the Euro
- If countries within the Eurozone undergo economic growth, the Euro can maintain its higher rate against the dollar
The US Federal Reserve: Interest rate reports are put out 8 times a year - take note of interest adjustments
The European Central Bank: Interest rate reports are put out every month - these also indicate interest rate adjustments
Interest rate adjustments: generally if interest rates go up in key countries of the Eurozone, the Euro strengthens in relation to the USD
- In the EU, pay attention to consolidated unemployment statistics (especially in key member countries)
- In the US, mark the first Friday of every month for the release of the non-farm unemployment rate, which affects how the dollar will fluctuate

Forex leverage is the amount of trading funds your broker is willing to credit your investment based on a ratio of your capital to the size of the credit. Your invested capital is usually only a fraction of the forex leverage credit size. In essence, leverage is borrowed capital you obtain from your broker to increase your potential returns.
The amount of leverage you can access differs from broker to broker. It also depends on the conditions for trading provided by your broker. You will be required to maintain a minimum balance in your account (usually a fraction of the leverage you will obtain) from which your leverage will be calculated based on the agreed-upon ratio. You use margin to create leverage. FX brokers call this trading on margin.
When trading with margin, the broker will set aside only a fraction of your position’s value, and they will fund the rest. Hence, you are said to be leveraged. The fraction of the position’s cost that was set aside is the margin requirement. It is expressed in percentage; say you are required to put up 2% of a $10,000 trading position you open. This means that you are trading at $10,000, but you only need to provide $200.
