EUR/USD looks to US data

The pair is prolonging the decline today, down for the fourth session in a row and recording at the same time fresh multi-day lows. The ongoing move lower opens the door for extra pullbacks with immediate target at the 1.1500 neighbourhood, or 11-month lows.

On the other side, investors’ sentiment keep supporting the demand for the buck amidst the current trade disputes between China and the US and a downward trend in yields of the key US 10-year note.

In the data space, the most relevant event will be the flash gauge of the US Consumer Sentiment for the current month, seconded by June’s Export/Import Prices.
