The Euro Swings Above $1.30 For The First Time In Weeks

The euro has topped $1.30 this morning, reversing a downward trend we’ve been seeing since late October.

This marks the first time the euro has risen above $1.30 since January 3.

This euro strength comes as negotiations continue about a debt swap deal in Greece, an issue that could dominate talks at a meeting of eurozone finance ministers today and an EU leaders summit next week.
