The US dollar continues to lose ground against a basket of world currencies. EUR/USD quotes have reached the round level of 1.1600. The 1.1545 mark is already a “mirror” support. Relations between Washington and China have escalated again. The US ordered to close the Chinese consulate in Houston. A weak report on existing home sales in the US put additional pressure on the American currency. The demand for greenback is still low. Nevertheless, a technical correction is possible in the near future. We recommend opening positions from key levels.
