EUR/USD: The euro rose to hit two weeks high against greenback on Wednesday as the common currency enjoyed a boost from the recently announced proposal for a common fund that could move Europe closer to a fiscal union as it tries to counter the economic hit from the coronavirus pandemic.

The single currency was up 0.54% at $1.0983 EUR=, its highest since May 1.

At (21:16 GMT), the Canadian dollar was trading 0.4% higher at 1.3900 to the greenback. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3933 (38.2% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3995 (50% fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3854 (23.6% fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3807 (Lower BB).
