    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/USD recovery from session lows gathered momentum over the last hours, with the major reaching fresh daily highs ahead of 1.0900.

    EUR/USD bounces-off hourly 100-SMA again

    Currently, the EUR/USD pair trades 0.43% at fresh session highs of 1.0917. The extension of the losses in the European stocks combined with oil prices breaching $ 30 mark, refuelled concerns over the health of the global economy and worsened the market sentiment.

    Therefore, investors resort to low-yielding/safer currencies such as the euro, driving EUR/USD higher. Germany’s DAX drops -0.88%, the UK’s FTSE slides -0.84%, while the pan-European benchmark, the Euro Stoxx 50 declines -1.41%.

    Meanwhile, the major is expected to remain supported, tracking the sentiment on the global equities and oil markets. While the second-liner trade balance figures due alter shortly is expected to have virtually no impact on the prices. Next in focus remains a host of US economic releases for further cues on the major.
