In early currency market trading, EUR/USD hit 1.3564, down 0.46% on the day.
The euro rose on Monday morning following news of the European Union and International Monetary Fund bailout to tackle Ireland’s banking crisis, but those gains were reversed later the same day when it became clear that Ireland’s coalition government would struggle to meet conditions for the bailout.
According to EUR/USD analysis, the euro was likely to touch support around the low of Nov. 16, 1.3483, and encounter resistance around the high of Nov. 19, 1.3731.
The euro’s drop also came as FX traders awaited the release of the final third quarter reading of Germany’s GDP Tuesday morning.
Elsewhere, the euro also continued its slide versus the sterling: EUR/GBP traded at 0.852, down 0.19%, according to intraday analysis.
