Forex: EUR/USD extends losses ahead of FOMC minutes (Córdoba) - The euro extended losses versus the greenback during the American afternoon and hit a marginal new low of 1.3332 ahead of the release of the minutes from the latest FOMC meeting.

As for technical levels, if EUR/USD breaks below the 1.3330 area, next supports are seen at 1.3306 (low Feb 15/38.2% retracement of 1.2660/1.3710) and 1.3270. On the other hand, recovery attempts could find resistance at 1.3400, followed by 1.3450 (21-day SMA) and 1.3475 (high Feb 12).
