FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/USD pair witnessed sudden bid wave last minutes, lifting the prices from session lows and now storming towards the mid-point of 1.08 handle. EUR/USD sees a sudden 80-pips jump Currently, the EUR/USD pair trades 0.56% higher at 1.0840, hovering close to fresh session highs printed at 1.0849 few minutes ago. The main currency pair bounced-off lows and jumped nearly 80-pips higher, regaining 1.08 handle beyond, on the back of fresh sell-off seen in the European stocks as the Chinese yuan devaluation-led risk-aversion wave continues to hit the sentiment hard. Germany’s DAX drops over -3.60%, the UK’s FTSE sinks almost 3% while the pan European benchmark, the Euro Stoxx 50 falls -3.30%. Moreover, the non-existent demand for riskier currencies continues to weigh heavily on the buck, thereby boosting the bids in the EUR/USD. Meanwhile, markets looked past mixed set of German data and now await the EMU employment and retail trade numbers due for release shortly or fresh cues. EUR/USD Technical Levels In terms of technicals, the pair finds the immediate resistance is seen at 1.0881/87 (1h 200-SMA/ 20-DMA).
