By FXstreet.com | Updated August 26, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD is back trading above the 1.32 mark at the beginning of the European session after hitting a fresh 11-month low amid expectations the European Central Bank will take further easing measures.



Despite staging a mild recovery, the EUR/USD remains vulnerable, having been unable to fill the bearish weekly opening gap, and having traded within a 40-pip range over the last sessions.



At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.3210, 0.13% above its opening price, having hit its lowest since early September 2013 at 1.3178. In terms of data releases focus will be on the US, where durable goods orders and consumer confidence are due.

In terms of technical levels, the EUR/USD could find immediate supports at 1.3161 (Sep 9 2013 low), 1.3104 (Sep 6 2013 low) and 1.3100 (psychological level).
