EUR/USD bounces off 1.0900, back to square one

FXStreet (Córdoba) – EUR/USD picked up some pace into the New York close and climbed to positive ground for the day.

EUR/USD had fallen to a daily low of 1.0902, just a few pips above yesterday’s bottom, but the dollar lacked momentum to drag the pair below the 1.09 mark. However, the subsequent bounce was also unable to break EUR/USD trading range, which is bounded by 1.0945 on the upside. At time of writing, EUR/USD is trading at 1.0930, up 0.11% on the day.

US dollar barely reacted to disappointing data published earlier on the day. November pending home sales fell 0.9%, missing by far expectations of a 0.5% increase.

As activity continues to wind down into the year end, majors remain confined to narrow ranges but vulnerable to sharp choppy moves amid thin volume.
