    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD has continued to fall during the New York session and has erased in a couple of hours most of its weekly gains.

    EUR/USD came under pressure as the greenback strengthened across the board despite a below-expectations US GDP reading, and dropped below the 50-day SMA to a fresh 3-day low of 1.0833 in recent dealings.

    Data showed US economy expanded by 0.7% in the fourth quarter, versus 0.8% expected. On the other hand, the Chicago PMI jumped to 55.6 in January, from 42.9 the previous month and above 45.3 expected.
