    FXStreet (Mumbai) - After bottoming out at 1.0800 in the overnight trades, the EUR/USD pair attempts a minor-recovery beyond 50-DMA in the early Asian trades.

    EUR/USD supported at 1.08 handle

    Currently, the EUR/USD pair rises 0.12% to 1.0838, hovering close to fresh session highs printed at 1.0846 in opening trades. The main currency pair appears to reverse a part of the FOMC induced 1 big figure decline seen yesterday, as the US dollar corrects sharply from two-week highs reached against its major competitors. The USD index drops -0.17% to 99.03, easing-off 99.35 levels.

    The overnight negative close on the Wall Street and cautious trades seen on the Asian indices so far also boosted the demand for the euro as a safe-haven. Japan’s Nikkei drops -0.66% to 19,224 after a 2-day rally while the Australian S&P/ASX is also losing -0.70% to trade at 5,066 points.

    Looking ahead, the sentiment on the global equities is likely to dominate the major in absence of relevant economic data in the day ahead. While unwinding of positions heading into the Christmas week may also lend some support to the EUR bulls.
