EUR/USD takes a breather above 1.2650

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD resumed the slide during the European session, falling to fresh 2-day lows, after the latest recovery attempt was capped by the 1.2715 area.

A touch of risk aversion, falling equities and disappointing Italian industrial output weighed on EUR/USD, which dropped more than 70 pips and touched a low of 1.2649 before recovering a tad. At time of writing, the pair is trading at the 1.2670 zone, 0.16% below its opening price.

Looking ahead, the economic calendar is pretty light for the rest of the day, with US import price index and Canadian unemployment rate scheduled.
