EURUSD: The Euro rose to a 3-week high versus the greenback, with strong Eurozone and German GDP numbers.

Another report showed that the German economy grew a larger-than-expected 0.8% in the third quarter, thanks to strong trade and investment figures. The upbeat data indicated that the European Central Bank tapering plans are likely to remain on track.
Another important news was about the US tax reform last week. The US House of Representatives approved a broad package of tax cuts, which will now be debated by the Senate. Investors were still cautious, however, as the Republican majority is smaller in the Senate and no decisive action is expected until after next week Thanksgiving holiday. If passed as is, the corporate tax rate will be cut to 20% from 35%.
In the upcoming week, the notes from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting in November will be the most significant release.

The notes may help forecasters model the upcoming decisions from the central bank. We might see some fluctuations in the US Dollar in the next week.
