EURUSD is reverting Thursday’s pullback and is now posting small gains in the 1.1680/75 band. What is next? This will be highlighted in the following 31 August EURUSD Technical Forecast.
31 August, OctaFX – The pair is now attempting to consolidate in the upper end of the weekly range, returning to sub-1.1700 levels although still managing well to keep gains for the third week in a row.
The greenback, in the meantime, faded yesterday’s spike to the 94.90 region and appears around the 94.60 area when tracked by the US Dollar Index (DXY). Renewed concerns in the EM FX space plus trade jitters gave the buck some fresh oxygen on Thursday.
