Flash: Risk tones boosted on upbeat PMI data across Europe – Investec

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The EUR/USD is the main focus of market activity this morning as risk sentiment and the various upcoming European Purchasing Managers’ Index releases have driven the single currency back above 1.3000 against the greenback.
