EUR/USD makes another attempt at 1.3400

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD took another step higher and rose briefly above the 1.3400 level, with the rally being propelled by USD weakness more than euro self-strength.

The EUR/USD snuck a peek above 1.3400 and scored a high of 1.3407 before pulling back slightly. At time of writing, the EUR/USD is trading at 1.3392, still up 0.22% on the day.
