The EUR/USD pair stalled last week’s bullish momentum and kicked-off a new week sharply lower, on the back of resurgence of USD buying as FBI cleared Clinton’s email cases again.
EUR/USD: Recovery remains capped by 1.1110
Currently, EUR/USD trades -0.60% lower at 1.1073, retreating slightly from session lows struck at 1.1067 last hour. The EUR/USD pair witnessed quite a volatile Asian session, with a bearish opening gap quickly reversed, only to find fresh offers just ahead of 1.11 handle and the bears sent the rate sharply lower back towards daily lows.
The sentiment towards the US dollar picked-up significant pace this Monday after reports hit the wires that the FBI cleared Clinton of the emails case, noting that it’s more of carelessness than criminality. The FBI’s clearance once again lifted the odds for a Clinton win, with just two days remaining for the US presidential elections.
Meanwhile, markets now look forward to the German factory orders data lined up for release ahead of Europe open, which will be followed by Eurozone Sentix and retail sales data. While US calendar holds only the Labor market conditions report for fresh incentives.
