FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/GBP extended losses to a fresh 18-month low Thursday after yesterday’s UK employment data pave the way for more Sterling gains.
The EUR/GBP came under strong pressure in anticipation and response to the ECB easing measures, entering a bearish phase that has extended into a seventh consecutive day. The EUR/GBP broke below the 0.8060 area and hit its lowest level since December 2012 at 0.8041 in recent dealings.
At time of writing, the EUR/GBP is trading at the 0.8045 area, recording a 0.17% loss on the day, and accumulating a drop of 1.05% this month.
Up ahead for the European session, the ECB will release the Monthly Report, while the EZ will publish April industrial production figures.
