The EURUSD pair rose slightly as investors reacted to Trump’s new pressure on reopening the US economy. In a tweet yesterday, the president said that he had the authority to reopen the economy even as the number of coronavirus cases continued to rise. The claim has been debunked by a number of fact checkers, who said that only governors could reopen the economy.

According to the New York Times, Trump has been under pressure from his business friends like Steve Schwarzman to reopen the economy. On the other hand, his medical advisors have warned him that reopening the economy would lead to more infections and more deaths.

Meanwhile, in Europe, a number of countries have started planning on how to restart their economies. Italy and Spain, the most affected countries in the region have started to lift restrictions on non-essential businesses.

As I reported earlier, Germany has also considered lifting these restrictions while France is planning on the best way to lift the restrictions.

Still, the biggest challenge countries are facing is on how to restart the economies without risking more infections.
