FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD moved lower and printed yet new lows after data showed the US ISM manufacturing index grew more than expected in October.

EUR/USD weighed by ECB speculation, US data

The EUR/USD extended its decline into a fifth day Friday and having broken below the 1.3500 mark it recently hit its lowest since Oct 16 at 1.3483. The euro came under renewed pressure amid speculation the ECB could loose its policy further after the Eurozone CPI came in surprisingly weak yesterday. In the US data front, the ISM manufacturing index rose to 56.4 in October against expectations for a dip to 55.0, which also offered support to the greenback.
