EUR/USD posts fresh highs as USD weakens

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD bounced sharply from session lows and climbed to fresh highs for the day as the dollar weakened broadly at the beginning of the New York session, weighed by softening in yields.

EUR/USD rose nearly half a cent in a matter of minutes and reached a new high at 1.0730 in recent dealings. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.0719, recording a 0.57% gain on Thursday.

The latest string of US data was lackluster, with jobless claims matching expectations and Philly Fed mfg slightly above expectations. On Wednesday, FOMC minutes showed some members believe conditions to warrant a rate hike might be met in December, but kept options open.
