EUR/USD challenges 2-week lows

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD continues to pressure against daily lows at the 1.1135 zone, but buyers have managed to keep the euro contained.

EUR/USD broke below the 100-day SMA and fell to a 2-week low of 1.1136 as the dollar continues to benefit from the risk averse environment and investors look past economic indicators.

At time of writing, EUR/USD is trading at 1.1143, posting its third consecutive loss in a row, after peaking at 1.1459 following Fed decision to stay on hold last week.
