Following a negative start of the week, the pair is now attempting to consolidate in the area of YTD lows in the 1.1830/20, coming down after Monday’s tops in the boundaries of the psychological 1.2000 the figure.

The greenback, in the meantime, remains bid above the 93.00 handle backed by the robust performance of yields of the key US 10-year note, which clinched fresh multi-year peaks around 3.08% on Tuesday.
