EUR/USD eyes Jackson Hole for fresh direction

Currently, EUR/USD trades +0.07% higher at 1.1290, having found strong support at 1.1280. The main currency pair traded comatose almost throughout the Asian trades, and now extends the range-play into the early European trading, as markets refrain from creating fresh positions in the major ahead of the highly influential event for today, Yellen’s speech.

The EUR/USD pair, although manages to find some support from lower Asian equities, which underpins the funding currency euro, while the corrective rally fails to gather momentum in absence of fresh fundamental triggers.

Focus shifts to the US GDP report due to be published in the NA session, while the major remains at the mercy of the Fed Chair Yellen’s remarks.
