    The EUR/USD pair dropped below 1.13 handle as the carry unwind stalled following an uptick in the European stocks.

    Hourly 50-MA is now a resistance

    The hourly 50-MA, which acted as a strong support earlier today has been taken out following the European opening bell. The Euro Stoxx 50 index currently trades 1% higher. Therefore, the demand for the safe havens and funding currencies has dropped for now.

    However, the losses are being restricted around 1.1280 as investors wish to see if stocks maintain the bid tone or the concerns surrounding the banking sectors triggers another round of sell-off.
