    FXStreet (Córdoba) - The euro extended gains versus a weaker US dollar and climbed above the 200-day SMA to post its highest level in 6 weeks.

    EUR/USD picked up pace as the greenback faced another round of selling ahead of the Federal Reserve meeting, with the pair reaching a high of 1.1047 in recent dealings. The euro is struggling to consolidate above the 200-day SMA, with next target at 1.1060, where the 100-day SMA stands.

    There is no data scheduled for the rest of the session. Tomorrow, German/EMU ZEW surveys are due ahead of US CPI figures.
