EUR/USD turns positive at 1.1436

The EUR/USD pair trades almost unchanged at fresh session highs of 1.1440, testing fresh 3-week highs reached at 1.1442 on Thursday. The main currency pair clinged to the 1.14 handle and now attempts a bounce to reach fresh multi-week peaks amid escalating risk-off moods, as the European indices accelerate losses responding to the Fed’s status-quo.

On Thursday, the EUR/USD pair jumped some 100 pips to fresh three-week highs at 1.1442, as the US dollar was heavily dumped after the Fed kept interest rates on hold for the 55th straight meeting, raising serious concerns over lower inflation and global economic uncertainties on the financial markets, stemming from China.

Looking ahead, traders are expected to remain cautious amid a data-dry trading calendar ahead while markets continue to assess the Fed’s decision. While Greek elections scheduled on Sunday will be closely eyed for further cues on the major.
