EUR/USD: The euro rose to its highest in nearly two years against dollar Wednesday after European leaders agreed a stimulus plan to fuel recovery from the economic damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Investors also expect a massive amount of fiscal spending to support growth in major economies but could easily be disappointed if any stimulus falls short of expectations. The common currency hit $1.1547 on Wednesday, its best since January 2019. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1585 (Daily high), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1614 (23.6% fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1504 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1494(38.2% fib).
GBP/USD: The British pound fell on Wednesday on growing concern that the Brexit transition period will end without a deal between Britain and the EU, and on the foggy economic prospects for the country as it looks to emerge from its coronavirus lockdown. Brexit has taken a back-seat during the pandemic, but with a transition period set to expire at year-end, the clock is ticking for Britain to reach a trade deal with the bloc. London wants free trade but is prepared for no deal, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said on Wednesday. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2746 (Daily high), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2857 (23.6% fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2642 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2600 (38.2 %fib).
USD/CAD: The Canadian dollar rose to a near-six-week high against its U.S. counterpart on Wednesday, after data showed Canada's annual inflation rate in June poste its biggest acceleration in more than nine years The inflation rate spiked as restrictions imposed to curb the coronavirus outbreak were lifted, Statistics Canada said on Wednesday .Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3428 (23.6% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3471 (5MA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3399 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3314 (June 10th low).
USD/JPY: The dollar edged higher against the Japanese yen on Wednesday as unease around the next round of economic stimulus in the United States kept the U.S. dollar subdued.

Broader risk appetite has improved this week amid progress in developing vaccines for the novel coronavirus and a historic stimulus deal in Europe, reducing the greenback's safe-harbour appeal. Strong resistance can be seen at 107.05 (5 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 107.50 (50% fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 106.50 (Lower BB), a break below could take the pair towards 106.00 (Psychological level).
