    EUR/USD consolidates losses near session lows as the greenback retains the firm tone across the board amid thin liquidity given the US Presidents’ Day.

    EUR/USD came under pressure on Monday, amid improved market’s sentiment, and fell to a 1-week low of 1.1127 into the European close, but the dollar lost momentum and the pair was confined to a range over the last hours. At time of writing, EUR/USD is trading at 1.1142, still 0.76% below its opening price.

    Earlier on the day, Mario Draghi said the European Central Bank is ready to do its part and he reiterated “the Governing Council will review and possibly reconsider the monetary policy stance in early March”.
