EUR/USD extends daily gains, approaches 100-day SMA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD has continued to move slightly higher during the American afternoon, hitting fresh 8-day highs as the dollar was under mild pressure on the back of disappointing economic data.

EUR/USD extended gains into a fourth straight day, and reached a peak of 1.0967 in recent dealings despite stocks turned positive in Wall Street. However, the pair lost momentum ahead of last week’s high (1.0975) and the 100-day SMA, which stands as next major resistance level around 1.0982.
