    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD continued to move lower over the last hours and fell back below the 1.08 mark in recent dealings as investors continue to assess dovish ECB rhetoric and further weighed by disappointing Eurozone PMI readings.

    Following a roundtrip from 1.0900 to 1.0777 and back on Thursday, EUR/USD came under renewed pressure on Friday, having dropped nearly 100 pips throughout the day to score a low of 1.0793 in recent dealings.

    From a wider perspective, EUR/USD downside remains favored given divergence policy outlooks, specially after Draghi hinted at further easing yesterday. However, the risk environment surrounding financial markets has limited the shared currency losses.
