FXstreet.com (Edinburgh) - The offered tone is now creeping back to the single currency, slowly dragging the EUR/USD to a test of intraday lows around 1.3615/10.

EUR/USD holding on to 1.3600

Despite the softer trading, the pair continues to consolidate its weekly ascent above the key 1.3600 handle, paying special attention to the events across the pond, regarding the current administrative paralysis in the US Government and the upcoming debt ceiling debate. The publication of the US Payrolls has been cancelled, leaving today’s Fedspeak as the main event to follow by investors. In the opinion of Anders Lumholtz at Danske Bank, “this is the type of market environment that has the potential to trigger an overshoot in EUR/USD and we maintain our 1.37 1M forecast from late September - even as sentiment has already become fairly bullish (indicating that trading accounts are already quite long EUR/USD)”.
