    EUR/USD has entered a consolidation phase around 1.1100 and near 2-week lows as investors digest Fed and ECB minutes, which coincidentally underlined that downside risks to their economies have increased over the last couple of months.

    EUR/USD fell below the 1.11 mark and hit its lowest level in two weeks at 1.1070 before finding support and recovering some ground. However, the bounce was capped by the 1.1110 area, confining the pair yo a sideways phase. At time of writing, EUR/USD is trading at 1.1085, down 0.38% on the day,
