An act of terrorism that took place on April 15 at the finish of the Boston Marathon gave the meaning to the upward movement of the pair EUR/USD and it seems that dollar’s fall against euro will continue for some period of time.
We would like to remind that 2 explosions happened near the finish of the Boston Marathon and in the end 3 people died and 180 were injured. Explosion damaged buildings around – windows were blown out. According to police and doctors reports, bombs could be stuffed with balls from ball bearings.
