EUR/USD little changed ahead of Jackson Hole

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD edged a tad lower at the beginning of the American session, although the slide lacked strength as the recovery did as all attention turns to Janet Yellen speech in Jackson Hole.

Fed Chair is expected to speak at 14:00 GMT and investors will be looking for any signals about the Federal Reserve first rate hike. Meanwhile the EUR/USD has been confined to a narrow range in cautious markets ahead of not only Yellen's but also Draghi’s speech.

The EUR/USD recovery attempt was capped ahead of the 1.3300 level, with the subsequent pullback extending to a low of 1.3257 in recent dealings. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.3270, little changed since opening.
