EUR/USD stages modest bounce

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD recovered slightly and is back testing the upper-side of today’s range, although it has lacked strength to break decisively above the 1.2900/10 zone.

EUR/USD has been confined to a narrow range over the last hours after hitting a fresh 14-month low of 1.2859 during the European trade, weighed by a negative mood in financial markets and broad dollar strength.

At time of writing, EUR/USD is trading at 1.2901, virtually unchanged on the day, having hit an hourly high of 1.2906, a couple of pips ahead of its European session peak.

"Fears that the Scottish referendum could reverberate in Spain as Catalonia pushes for a vote this fall helped spark the rise in yields".

EUR/USD technical levels
