EUR/USD pushes against 1.3400... again

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD is once testing the 1.3400 area in a choppy session where the pair has mainly wavered in a range, unable to define a clear direction.

Despite the latest string of US data had little impact on the pair, the EUR/USD managed to sneak a peek above the psychological level and scored a high of 1.3402. However, the pair has been unable to hold above 1.3400 for long so far this week, printing lower highs over the last 3 days. At time of writing, the EUR/USD is trading at 1.3398, 0.26% above its opening price.

On the data front, the NY Empire State manufacturing index fell to 14.7, versus a reading of 20.0 expected while PPI rose 0.1% in line with forecasts.

EUR/USD levels to watch

as for technical levels, immediate resistances could be found at 1.3415 (Aug 13 high), 1.3432 (Aug 8 high) and 1.3444 (Aug 1 high). On the flip side, supports are seen at 1.3358 (Aug 15 low), 1.3342 (Aug 13 low), 1.3332 (2014 low Aug 6) and 1.3300 (psychological level).
