There was no significant breakthrough in the latest round of peace talks, but negotiations are scheduled to resume today March 15.

In the Euro zone, the German ZEW headline figures for March revealed that sentiment worsened to -39.3 compared to 54.4 previous reading. At the same time, in the Euro area, the economic sentiment index also marked a deterioration sentiment to -38.7 versus 48.6 previous reading.

“A recession is becoming more and more likely. The war in Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia are significantly dampening the economic outlook for Germany,” said the ZEW economic research institute.

The news pushed EUR slightly up against the greenback towards the high of the day but without making any significant breakthrough above the 1.1000 big round number.
