The EUR/USD currency pair has been growing. The trading instrument has updated local highs. The demand for risky assets has grown amid the gradual lifting of restrictions imposed to fight the COVID-19 epidemic worldwide.

At the moment, EUR/USD quotes are consolidating in the range of 1.0905-1.0940. We do not exclude further growth of the single currency against the greenback. We expect important economic releases from the US. Positions should be opened from key levels.
