ForexLive Americas FX news wrap: Markets get high on tax talk

Forex news for US trading on April 20, 2017

It was a roundtrip for the euro. Polls showing some momentum for Macron helped EUR/USD up to 1.0777 in early European trade but it later made a double-top there and the US dollar caught a bid on more talk of tax cuts from the White House. The top led to selling all the way down to 1.0717, which was nearly flat on the day.
