The data published by the USA yesterday was rather mixed, as usual recently. The New Home Sales was 901K in July after being 791K in June and against the expected reading of 787K. 

The CB Consumer Confidence in the USA dropped to 84.8 points in August after being 91.7 points the month before and against market expectations of 93.0 points.

At the same time, the data from Germany was in favor of the Euro. The Ifo Business Climate expanded up to 92.6 points in July after being 90.4 points in the previous month.
