In the US session, the dollar gained some ground, also thanks to a high level of consumer confidence. The greenback gradually reasserted itself and EUR/USD climbed down from the highs, eventually slipping under 1.20.
This climb down accelerates with a further drop: the pair is trading around 1.1950. Support awaits at 1.1870.
Some of this drop is related to fear that a strong euro would push Draghi to announce a softer version of QE tapering. Yet some is just a US dollar correction ahead of key US figures.
Later today, we will get a snapshot of the US economy via an updated version of GDP. This will be accompanied by the ADP Non-Farm Payrolls. The biggest event of the week is the official NFP on Friday.Get the 5 most predictable currency pairs
