The cross keeps trading in the lower band of the recent range, at shouting distance of the critical support at 1.0800 the figure, levels last seen in late August. A renewed softer tone around EUR remains the main driver of the ongoin decline, while markets are getting ready for the ECB meeting on Thursday.
