    EUR/USD recovered slightly from session lows during the American afternoon although it remains in negative ground for the day but on track to post its third weekly gain in a row.

    EUR/USD came under pressure following better-than-expected US retail sales data and stretched to a low of 1.1213 before finding support. The pair is currently trading at 1.1255, 0.59% below its Friday’s opening but 1.03% up over the week.

    Earlier this week, a not-so-dovish testimony from Fed Chair Yellen and supportive US data helped the greenback to slow down the decline against the euro.
