EUR/USD targets the YTD lows near 1.1660
EUR/USD extends the bearish move for yet another session on turnaround Tuesday and at the same time enters the fourth consecutive week with losses.
Higher US yields and the intense recovery in the greenback propelled the US Dollar Index (DXY) to new 2021 highs near 93.80 ahead of the testimony by Fed’s Powell before the Senate.
Earlier at the ECB Forum in Sintra, President Lagarde defended the current accommodative stance in the central bank, which will ensure a safe exit from the coronavirus pandemic and is expected to help bring inflation back to the bank’s goal.
Later in the session, and apart from Powell, the Conference Board will publish it Consumer Confidence gauge for the current month.
