EUR/USD at 1.1240. US existing home sales dropped 7.1%.

EUR/USD slightly declined today. As of 6:10 PM EDT the currency pair was trading at 1.1240, which is 0.25% lower than the previous close.

ScotiaBank analysts provided their outlook on EUR/USD today. “The market’s inability to test the early February high at 1.1375 suggests the broader trend in the EUR remains somewhat sideways. Levels to 1.13/14 range are still likely to attract selling interest, which has really been the pattern of trade for the EUR over the past year” written in the report.
