The bulls appear to take a breather, pushing the EURUSD pair back towards the 1.16 handle heading into the German IFO business surveys slated for release at 0800 GMT. What can traders do at the moment? Gain insight into this 27 August EURUSD Technical Analysis.
27 August, OctaFX – The major paused its rebound just ahead of the 1.1650 levels, despite persisting broad-based US dollar weakness, as markets await the sentiment on the European markets for the next push higher.
The greenback remains broadly undermined by an unexpected dovish tone delivered by the Fed Chair Powell during his speech at the Jackson Hole Symposium. Powell confirmed the need for gradual rate hikes, which remains data-dependent. Also, a bigger-than-expected drop in the US durable goods data keeps the downbeat tone intact around the buck.
However, the retreat in the major could stall should the German IFO business surveys better expectations and provide the much-needed boost to the EUR bulls. The German IFO business climate for August is expected to arrive at 102.0 versus 101.7 previous.
