By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The rise of the EUR/USD gathered pace within the last minutes, with the pair climbing to fresh weekly highs ahead of the Federal Reserve last meeting’s minutes.



The EUR/USD broke above the 1.3630 area and spiked to a fresh post-ECB/NFP high of 1.3642 as the greenback loses ground across the board. Earlier, the shared currency received a boost from ECB's Coene saying the EUR is not too strong.



Investors focus remain on the FOMC minutes due to be released at 18:00 GMT, hoping they could shed some light on when the Fed will hike rates.
