    The shared currency picked-up significant strength versus its American counterpart in the last hours, with EUR/USD now hovering near multi-month highs above 1.1150.

    EUR/USD takes-out Wednesday’s highs and beyond

    Currently, EUR/USD trades 0.44% higher at 1.1153, having printed fresh four-month highs at 1.1162 last minutes. The latest upsurge seen in the EUR/USD pair was triggered by ECB’s Chief Draghi’s pledge to fight inflation, as he spoke at the Deutsche Bundesbank’s Marjolin Lecture, in Frankfurt.

    Further, the EUR/USD pair completely ignored the risk-on rally in the European stocks and strengthened further as the US dollar halted its correction and resumed its broad based sell-off ahead of the US data releases, including the jobless claims and factory orders, which are likely to disappoint markets.
