The reason of such a decline appeared to be negative data from German consumer prices in July raising opinions that the ECB will maintain interest rates at a record low till the end of the year. The EUR traded $1.4154 from $1.4142 late Monday and was at 135.74 yen, down from 137.32.
The British equity market movements tend to have major affects on the Pound`s value. Even more, Forex traders are staying cautious ahead of today's BOE inflation announcement.

The Euro-Zone Industrial Production report is also set to be announced at 9:00 GMT, negative results will likely put further downside pressure on the EUR.
