EUR/USD drops to 1-week low
Following a phase of consolidation, the EUR/USD came under pressure and broke below the 1.3580 support zone, accelerating to fresh lows at the beginning of the American session.
Mixed US housing data had nothing to do with the drop, which started minutes before and saw the EUR/USD trigger stops and fall to a 1-week low of 1.3565. However, the pair found support ahead of the 100-day SMA and at time of writing it is trading at the 1.3575 zone, recording a 0.3% loss on the day.
