The consolidation between the key levels at 1.3325 and 1.3440 has continued, and it has now been going on all August. Yesterday I expected a rise was more likely than a fall but in fact the price has dipped and is now approaching 1.3325. If this level is hit before the news release due later today shortly after the beginning of the New York session, it should hold. It is hard to say what will happen next.
The levels should both be good for trades if they are confirmed by subsequent price action. We have much bigger USD news due tomorrow (FOMC minutes release) and the consolidation area is quite likely to hold until then.
There are no high-impact data releases due today concerning the EUR. Regarding the USD, there will be data releases at 1:30pm London time concerning CPI and Building Permits. Therefore it is likely to be a quiet today until the New York session begins.
