EUR/USD climbs back closer to 1-month tops, 100-DMA hurdle
• The prevalent USD selling bias helps regain positive traction on Friday.
• Mostly in-line German Gfk Consumer Climate index remains supportive.
• Traders now eye US GDP/durable goods orders data for fresh impetus.
The EUR/USD pair caught some fresh bids on Friday and moved back within striking distance of the overnight swing high, or one-month tops.
After yesterday's retracement from 100-day SMA barrier, the pair regained positive traction on the last trading day of the week and continues to benefit from the prevalent US Dollar selling bias.
The greenback struggled to preserve/build on its Asian session recovery from one-month lows and continues to be weighed down by renewed fears of an inversion in the yield curve after the not so dovish FOMC outlook.
Meanwhile, the release of mostly in line German GfK Consumer Climate index, coming in at 10.4 for December, remained supportive of the prevalent positive tone surrounding the shared currency.
It would now be interesting to see if the pair is able to build on the positive momentum and make it through 100-day SMA barrier as market focus shifts to a duo of US macroeconomic releases, due later in the day.
Today's US economic docket highlights the release of final Q3 GDP growth figures and durable goods order data, which will be looked upon for some short-term trading impetus.
