    EUR/USD weaker after explosions in Belgian metro

    The pair has come under further downside pressure after three explosions were reported at three metro stations in Brussels today, following an earlier explosion with several dead at the airport.

    Spot has quickly broken below the critical support at 1.1200 the figure although it seems that some decent support emerged in the 1.1190/80 band for the time being.
