FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - Today's session was driven by pessimism toward the shared currency after the European Union and some of its members reported the economy contracted more than expected in the Q4. The EURUSD weakened further after ECB Vice President Constancio suggested negative interest rates are a possibility. Elsewhere, the pound fell to a fresh 6-month low sub-1.5500 versus the greenback, while the yen continued to consolidate within its Monday's range.
