    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/USD pair poses a minor-recovery from a brief dip near 5-DMA at 1.0959 levels and reverts to familiar range seen during the Asian session.

    EUR/USD recovers from 1.0955 region

    Currently, the EUR/USD pair rises 0.10% to 1.0974, re-attempting a break beyond the stiff resistance located at 1.0978. The main currency pair quickly regained lost ground and swung back on the bids as the demand for the safe-haven (the EUR) remains underpinned amid wavering European equities.

    The German benchmark, the DAX trades muted versus a 0.20% gain at open while the Euro Stoxx 50 drops -0.27% versus +0.12% previously.

    Moreover, the greenback failed to sustain gains and fell back in the red zone against its major competitors, boosting the bids for EUR/USD. The US dollar index drops -0.08% to 97.94, notwithstanding 98 barrier.

    Meanwhile, markets will continue to take cues from sentiment on the European and the US stocks amid low volumes and unusual volatility prevalent today.
