FXStreet (Córdoba) - The dollar came under broad pressure during the European session for no apparent reason, falling against major competitors.

The EUR/USD spiked to a fresh 2-week high of 1.3685 in a sudden move that wasn't news driven. The GBP/USD also advanced to a 3-week peak of 1.6653 while the USD/JPY broke below 102.00. Currencies linked to commodities are nearly flat with the AUD underperforming in the wake of disappointing Australian jobs data.

During the New York session, the US will release jobless claims, Jan retail sales and Dec business inventories data.
