The pair could find it difficult to overcome 1.1340 hurdle in the short term.EUR/USD has managed to register modest daily gains on Monday and stretched higher toward 1.1300 on Tuesday with the greenback struggling to find demand at the start of the holiday-shortened week. The lack of a fundamental driver behind the common currency’s modest strength suggests that technical resistances could limit the pair’s upside.
Safe-haven flows dominated the financial markets on Monday and falling US Treasury bond yields weighed on the greenback. Although the 10-year US Treasury bond yield staged a late rebound and helped the US Dollar Index pull away from lows, the improving market mood is forcing the greenback to stay on the back foot on Tuesday.
