EUR/USD  is lower  after yesterday’s (Oct. 25th) US releases, which were a mixed bag. US Core Durable Goods posted its highest increase since January, with a healthy 2.0% gain.  Unemployment Claims was  very close to the estimate, while Pending Home Sales  fell  well below the  forecast.  The euro has not had a good week, as Euro-zone PMIs and other releases  were quite  disappointing for the most part. However, there was some good news this morning, as GfK German Consumer Climate looked sharp. The trading week wraps up  with several US releases, highlighted by  US Advance GDP. The markets are expecting   a rise in GDP  for the Q3 reading.
