    Good day... And a Wonderful Wednesday to you! Well... The currencies, for the most part, kept the heat on the dollar throughout the day and in the overnight markets.

Germany and France showed growth, which I must say is very unexpected! That means that both Germany and France have exited the recession... Well, that is at least for now! For those of you keeping score at home, Eurozone GDP fell -.1%, which is far better than the -.5% that was expected... Oh! And this is for the 2nd QTR... You would have to think that data like this would be very good for the euro, and from the looks of it, that's exactly what's happening!...
