    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD climbed to fresh 2-week highs as the dollar weakened further during the American session following a string of disappointing economic data.

    EUR/USD has risen sharply over the last sessions, underpinned by the risk aversion mood as the relief witnesses yesterday was short-lived. Later a series of soft US indicators, including retail sales and manufacturing data, gave the pair a final push to the upside.

    EUR/USD reached a peak of 1.0984, posting its highest level this year, but lost momentum ahead of the 1.1000 level. The pair is currently trading at 1.0947, recording a 0.77% gain on Friday.
