EUR/USD moved slightly higher Monday, although gains were limited after the German Bundesbank in its monthly report said that Germany's economic rebound in Q1 was largely due to one-off factors and the underlying trend remains weak. The yen today received support Monday from news that Japan Q1 GDP unexpectedly rose at a +2.1% (q/q annualized) pace, stronger than expectations of -0.2% (q/q annualized). Losses in the dollar were limited Monday after T-note yields rose, which boosted the dollar's interest rate differentials.
