EUR/USD below 1.27 lowest since 2012

FXStreet (Guatemala) - EUR/USD is trading at 1.2687, down -0.49% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.2762 and low at 1.2678.

EUR/USD is the lowest point since Sep 2012. Yellen’s statements of late are being followed up and that is weighing on the euro as divergence continues between the central banks policies for the longer term. The catalyst for todays declines came in the form of the US GDP that was first up and revised to 4.6% in the Q2 from 4.2%. Then the final number was in line with expectations, the highest figure since Q4 2010 and the catalyst for a firmer greenback today. PCE was falling in line at 2.3% up on 1.4% previous and the, although missing expectations slightly, it rose to 84.6 in September up from 82.5 on the previous month.
