FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/GBP came under pressure Monday as the euro lags the pound in the recovery against the dollar.
The EUR/GBP is falling for a second day in a row, having almost completely surrendered gains inspired by disappointing UK employment data which sent the pair to a high of 0.8035 two weeks ago. The EUR/GBP has fallen as low as 0.7953, last seen Aug 13, and it was last trading at 0.7955, recording a 0.4% loss so far Monday.
With UK markets closed for a holiday, traders are still assessing Yellen and Draghi’s speeches, with an easy-breezy ECB stance and disappointing german data weighing on the euro.
EUR/GBP technical levels
