EUR/USD at 1.3620 as Markets Eye Draghi Speech

The euro slipped early on Monday, while the other major currencies got off to a steady start as the results of a presidential election in Ukraine and votes for the European Parliament were so far greeted calmly by investors.

Dealers expect little action on Monday with U.S. markets closed for Memorial Day, while UK markets are shut for the Spring bank holiday.

The common currency last traded at $1.3629 compared with around $1.3631 late in New York on Friday. It briefly dipped to $1.3615, a low not seen since mid-February. Against the yen, it was a touch softer at 138.96.
