EUR/USD falls below 1.0600 for first time since April

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD pierced the 1.06 mark and posted its lowest level in over seven months as the dollar picked up pace over the last minutes despite a string of disappointing US data as investors await a statement from a closed Fed meeting.

After being rejected from a daily high of 1.0655, EUR/USD resumed the decline and hit a low of 1.0592 in recent dealings. At time of writing, the pair is trading 1.0602, recording a 0.39% loss on the day.

Prospects that the Fed will raise rates next month in contrast with expectations of more stimulus coming in Europe, continue to weigh on EUR/USD.
