EUR/USD little changed after PMIs

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD remained immutable around the flat line following the release of a series of mainly disappointing European countries’ PMIs.

While France's manufacturing PMI came in slightly above expectations in August, Spain, Germany, Italy and the Eurozone's as a whole were lower than expected. However, the euro barely reacted to data, although it stretched to a marginal daily high of 1.3138. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.3135, a couple of pips above Friday's close, having bounced from a fresh 1-year low of 1.3118.
