EUR/USD: The euro declined on Tuesday as dollar firmed tracking the rise in Treasury yields, as investors looked ahead to the Federal Reserve possibly reducing asset purchases in November and an interest rate hike likely to follow. On Tuesday, benchmark 10-year Treasury yields hit a three-month peak, and were last up four basis points at 1.5253% . The rise in yields accelerated after the U.S. central bank turned hawkish at last week's monetary policy meeting, reinforcing the market view for a sooner-than-expected Fed taper. The euro was down 0.1% versus the dollar at $1.1681 . Earlier in the session, it hit a six-week low of $1.1668. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1710 (38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1742(50%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1670(23.6%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1600 (Psychological level).
