FXStreet (Córdoba) - A combination of a strong pound with a struggling euro amid divergent economic performances and policy expectations, has sent the EUR/GBP to its lowest level since early September 2012.

Even though soft UK earnings data spurred profit-taking on EUR/GBP shorts, the recovery was short-lived and faltered at 0.7917. The EUR/GBP resumed the downside and bottomed out at 0.7889 at the beginning of the New York session. At time of writing, the EUR/GBP is trading at 0.7895, recording a 0.24% loss on the day and having lost almost 100 pips over the last 2 days.
