    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/USD pair continues to consolidate the upside and hovers in the upper band of 1.08 handle as mixed Asian session on mixed US dollar, keeps the major underpinned.

    EUR/USD supported above 10-DMA at 1.0862

    Currently, the EUR/USD pair trades 0.18% higher at 1.0880, having revisited daily highs at 1.0885 last minutes. The mixed sentiment seen in Asia appears to extend into Europe, with markets continuing to favour the safe-havens amid a lack of fresh fundamental triggers. While a broadly lower greenback, gauged by the US dollar index, also aids the recovery in the major.

    While the continued decline in the oil prices rattles investors’ confidence in risk currencies, such as the US dollar and hence, keeps EUR/UD supported heading into Europe. Moreover, solid gains seen in the EUR/GBP cross largely on GBP weakness, further supports the upside in EUR/USD.

    Looking ahead, the broader markets sentiment and oil price movement will continue to dictate further moves in the pair
