The USD had been a safe haven when it comes to the US-Sino trade war.

The pair fell below the 50-day MA (1.0070) and the line connecting January and March lows. If it goes below the 100-day MA (1.0024), the target will lie at 0.9955 (200-day MA, 50-week MA, and the line connecting 2018 and 2019 lows).
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
