    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD stayed near daily highs as the dollar barely reacted to the US GDP data, which showed economy grew at a slower pace than initially estimated in the third quarter.

    US gross domestic product rose at a 2.0% seasonally adjusted annual rate in the third quarter, down from 2.1% reported last month but still above the 1.9% expected.

    However, EUR/USD remained little changed above 1.0950 following the data, when a high posted at 1.0960 minutes before the data. At time of writing, the pair was trading at 1.0955, recording a 0.38% gain on Tuesday, as the euro continues to outperform other major currencies.
