EUR/USD lost 0.49%. Oil prices dropped 3%.

EUR/USD gradually declined throughout the day. As of 12:30 PM EDT the pair was trading at 1.1163, which is 0.49% below the previous close.

Analysts at UOB changed their EUR/USD outlook to neutral. “The break below 1.1200 yesterday was not surprising and indicates that the bullish EUR phase that started on the 11 Mar has ended. While further EUR strength is still expected further out, this is likely only after a period of consolidation. In other words, the outlook for the next couple weeks is viewed as neutral and we expect this pair to trade within a broad 1.1120/1.1375 range” written in the report.
