    EUR/USD moved off daily lows and trimmed intraday losses following the release of disappointing US retail sales and producer prices data.

    US retail sales fell 0.3% to a seasonally adjusted $446.89 billion in March, missing expectations of a 0.1% increase while compared with a year earlier, March sales grew 1.7%. Excluding automobiles sales rose 0.2%, below the 0.4% rise expected.

    Meanwhile, producer prices data also came on the soft side, with March headline and core indexes falling 0.1% each.

    The US dollar weakened slightly, sending EUR/USD to the 1.1325 zone, from 1.1300 prior data. At time of writing, the pair was trading at 1.1320, still recording a steep 0.55% loss on the day.
