The Greenback weakened against the Eurozone's single currency, following the US Retail Sales data release on Monday. The EUR/USD currency pair gained only three pips, or 0.02%, to continue going up afterwards.
The Census Bureau released two reports simultaneously, from which Retail Sales data came out better-than-expected, but Core Retail Sales came out in line with forecasts.
