Forex Weekly Outlook August 25−29

The dollar dominated once again, with multi−month gains against major currencies. Is it time for a correction or will this trend continue?

EUR/USD: 1.3000 psychological level comes at sight

EUR/USD sideways, bullish, sideways: despite trading at fresh year lows, our poll shows experts don’t expect much more downside, but a recovery in a 1 month view.

GBP/USD not everything’s lost: Pound may test 1.6500, but the longer term perspective remains quite bullish, with 1.7000 still at sight.

USD/JPY downward correction expected ahead of new highs: trading around 104.00, the pair may ease some during next week, but resume the upside towards fresh highs above 105.00 afterwards.

AUD/USD bearish interest building up: Aussie steady below 0.9300 favors a continued decline against the greenback in a 3 month view.

EUR/JPY bullish but still limited: bulls outstood in EUR/JPY albeit gains above the 140.00 remain unclear.
