Key quotes

"Downward traction in NZD/USD has stalled, though, in the face of strong technical resistance ahead of 0.8400."

"To make further progress, we will likely need a sustained rise in FX volatility or another bout of USD strength."

"On the latter, while positive data flow will be supportive, another hawkish (or less dovish) missive from the Fed is the crucial missing ingredient."

"In that vein, we look to the Fed’s annual academic symposium at Jackson Hole (21-23 August) as a possible flashpoint."

"Failing that, we may have to sit on our hands until the September policy meeting, where updated forecasts are due to be published, and Yellen will front up to financial media."

EUR/USD pressured by the buck, and may get some from ZEW

EUR/USD goes further down posting 1.3360 session low by the moment.
