EU focus: Euro rises, but debt concerns weigh

The euro was buoyant against the dollar on Wednesday after recovering from a seven-week low earlier in the week, but wariness over Europe's sovereign debt problems kept investors nervous about piling up euro positions.
The euro drew support from a recovery in oil prices and precious metals, while a downward trend in U.S. Treasury yields weighed on the dollar.
"The euro is still in a correction phase after recent declines. It has the potential to advance towards $1.43-$1.44 on hopes for more buybacks by foreign investors," said Hideki Amikura, a forex manager at Nomura Trust and Banking. "But the euro could lose ground again once rounds of corrective buying are over," Amikura said.
