FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD is once testing the 1.3400 area in a choppy session where the pair has mainly wavered in a range, unable to define a clear direction.

At time of writing, the EUR/USD is trading at 1.3398, 0.26% above its opening price.



On the data front, the NY Empire State manufacturing index fell to 14.7, versus a reading of 20.0 expected while PPI rose 0.1% in line with forecasts.



EUR/USD levels to watch
