EUR/USD: there it goes again

By FXstreet.com | Updated August 15, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD picked up momentum during the European session and resumed the upside in another attempt to break decisively above the 1.3400 level.



Even though the EUR/USD has reached daily highs above 1.3400 over the last days, it has been consistently unable to hold above that mark. Following a phase of consolidation and without a clear catalyst the EUR/USD spiked to a daily high of 1.3391, helped by broad European equities gains and Russian President Vladimir Putin's conciliatory remarks boosting sentiment.



At time of writing, the EUR/USD is trading at 1.3382, recording a 0.13% gain Friday. The pair however, is on track to close the week with losses, for fifth time in a row.
