EUR/USD breaks below 1.0900

FXStreet (Córdoba) – EUR/USD extended weakness at the beginning of the American session and finally broke below the 1.0900 area, which had provided support throughout the week.

EUR/USD broke its weekly range to the downside, sliding to a low of 1.0879, last seen Dec 23, as buying interest surrounding the greenback intensified into the final trading hours of 2015.

However, from a wider view, EUR/USD continues to trade directionless within 1.0800 – 1.1000 ever since the last Fed meeting, when the bank decided to hike rates for first time in nearly a decade.

On the data front, US initial jobless claims and the Chicago PMI will be released later on the day.

EUR/USD levels to watch
