E More Greek Variants To Follow

Whatever Wall Street thinks is going on, the new highs for our exchanges is followed in the rest of the world by lower rates for our greenback. 

Hot from the press, NIO, the US-listed China electric car maker, beat forecasts for its Q2 results on both sales and profits and moreover predicted both would rise further in the current quarter.
