USD/EUR falls to three-year low as US retail sales slump



Last week saw the pound fluctuate against many of its peers following the release of the UK’s latest economic data.


The pound is holding steady at the start of this week, with GBP/EUR stable at €1.1293 and GBP/USD unmoved at US$1.4025.


Sterling may find some gains when the UK publishes its latest employment figures later in the week.
