Forex: EUR/USD keeps falling, around 1.2975/80

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The shared currency remains in weekly lows in the area of 1.2975/80 as negative sentiment from the poor manufacturing data continues to weight on the cross.
The well-received Spanish auction of 3-month Letras, with lower yields and solid demand in combination with the wider trade surplus in Italy did nothing to spark a recovery in the cross.

In anticipation of the PMI prints, Currency Analyst Lee Hardman at BTMU commented, “They are expected to signal that recessionary conditions have extended into Q2 dampening expectations that the euro-zone economy will rebound in the second half of 2013”.

At the moment, the cross is down 0.66% at 1.2979 an d a dip beyond 1.2972 (MA21d) would aim for 1.2963 (low Apr.8) en route to 1.2936 (MA200d).
