EUR/USD sits at 3-week highs above 1.1350 on USD weakness

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The bid tone around the EUR/USD pair continues to strengthen in the mid-European session, now keeping the major within the vicinity of the fresh multi-week highs.

EUR/USD spikes to 1.5368

The EUR/USD pair trades 0.74% higher at 1.1360, rising from 1.345 region in the last hours. A renewed selling wave hit the US dollar heading towards the US opening bells, thus boosting EUR/USD further towards 1.14 barrier.

The US dollar ran through fresh offers against its major competitors and fell further into the red, on expectations that the American traders will quit the USD positions, with the disappointing Fed minutes still weighing on their minds. The USD index sinks -0.55% to 94.87.

Moreover, the strong upsurge in commodities boosted the metals & mining stocks on the European indices, thereby providing further impetus to the rally in the EUR/USD pair.

EUR/USD Technical Levels

The pair holds above all its daily major moving averages while the RSI remains above the mid-lines, supporting further advances. Hence, to the upside, the major faces immediate resistance at 1.1400 (round number), beyond which a test of 1.1442-60 (Sept 17 & 18 Highs) would become imminent. While the immediate support is located at 1.1300 (psychological levels), below which 1.1267 (5-DMA) could act as a strong support.
