LONDON (Reuters) - The euro extended its fall on Monday and headed for a new two-year low after Reuters reported that Germany’s leading economic institutes had revised down their growth forecast for Europe’s biggest economy for this year.
The single currency weakened 0.3% to as low as $1.0906 after the story was published, which cited sources with knowledge of the institutes’ decision.
The euro hit its weakest since 2017 last week, at $1.0904, weighed down by dollar strength and concerns about an economic downturn in the euro zone.
It also extended losses against sterling, falling half a percent to 88.56 pence
