FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - Following a consolidation phase, the euro came under renewed pressure and resumed the slide against the greenback, having set a fresh 6-week low during the American afternoon.

Weighed by the Italian elections uncertainty, EUR/USD extended losses toward 1.3127, its lowest since Jan 10. At time of writing, the cross is trading at the 1.3130 zone, recording a 0.4% loss on the day, having been as high as 1.3318.

The latest poll on the Italian Parliamentary elections points at a tight race in the lower house vote as well as in the Senate.
