EUR/USD posts fresh 6-month lows sub-1.0700

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD came under renewed pressure early during the American session and posted fresh 6-month sub-1.0700.

The euro weakened across the board and dropped to fresh lows against the dollar and the pound with no clear catalyst. EUR/USD dropped 40 pips in a matter of minutes and slid below the 1.07 mark to post a low of 1.0697. However, the pair found support and it is currently trading around the psychological level, recording a 0.42% loss on the day.

EUR/USD remains under broad pressure amid divergent policy outlooks. While the Fed is expected to raise rates in December, the ECB seems poised to loosen its policy further.

EUR/USD levels to watch

As for technical levels, if EUR/USD breaks decisively below 1.0700, next supports are seen at 1.0660 (Apr 21 low) and 1.0624 (Apr 16 low). On the flip side, resistances could be found at 1.0790 (Nov 9 high), 1.0896 (Nov 5 high) and then 1.0916 (10-day SMA).
