    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD came under renewed pressure and printed fresh daily lows sub-1.1000 after a timid reaction to US consumer price index data.

    After a failed attempt to break above the 100-day SMA at 1.1059 during the European session EUR/USD turned south, to slowly retrace gains over the last hours. The pair stretched a tad lower over the last minutes, posting a low of 1.0970 in recent dealings. At time of writing, EUR/USD is trading at 1.0976, now down 0.13% on the day.

    On the data front, US inflation, gauged by the consumer price index, was flat in November after rising a 0.2% in the previous month, while excluding the volatile food and energy categories, so called core CPI rose 0.2%, both in line with expectations. Separated data showed US Empire Manufacturing for December improved to -4.59 versus -6.00 expected.

    Investors attention remains on the Federal Reserve two-day meeting that gets underway, when the bank is expected to raise rates for first time in nearly a decade.
