EUR/USD rose to a high of 1.3590 but lacked momentum to approach 1.3600, while GBP/USD pushed to a daily high of 1.6080. Meanwhile the dollar also lost ground against the perceived safe-havens as the yen and the franc with USD/JPY touching a fresh 6-week low of 96.85.

On the other hand, the USD rose modestly versus commodity currencies while European stocks traded broadly lower, given the cautious tone prevailing in financial markets.
