EUR/USD refreshes daily tops near 1.1930                              

The spot regained momentum over the last hours, bouncing-back towards the mid-point of 1.19 handle, with intensifying risk-off trades, as the European traders hit their desks and react negatively to the North Korean missile launch news.

The renewed risk-aversion wave drives the US rates deeper into the red, stalling a tepid recovery staged by the US dollar against its major peers. Moreover, the low-yielding currencies such as the Euro tends to benefit during market unrest and panic.

Markets now look forward to the Eurozone trade balance data for some impetus ahead of the key US retail sales and industrial figures, especially after yesterday solid US CPI data, which lifted the Fed rate hike expectations for this year.
