EUR/USD: The euro strengthened on Monday as risk appetite returned to currency markets and investors weighed up the possible impact of an expected U.S. rate hike this week. The U.S. Federal Reserve has signalled a 75 basis-point rate hike at its July 26-27 meeting, although data last week showing inflation hit 9.1% year-on-year in June raised the possibility of a larger 100 bps hike later this year. At 1036 GMT, the U.S. dollar was down 0.2% at 106.49 , while the euro was up 0.1% at $1.02195 . Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0256(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.0328(30DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0132(14DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.0081(23.6%fib).
GBP/USD: The pound strengthened against the dollar on Monday as riskier currencies like pound gained before a widely expected U.S. interest rate hike this week. Investors widely expect the Fed to raise interest rates by another 75 bps when it concludes a two-day policy meeting on Wednesday. Britain's businesses grew at their slowest pace in 17 months in July and inflation pressures eased, according to an industry survey last week. Although consumer spending and businesses are struggling, the Bank of England is widely expected to raise interest rates by 50 bps at a policy meeting on Aug. 4. The pound versus the U.S. dollar held around $1.2058 after hitting highest level in nearly three weeks at 1.2078. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2077(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2180(38.2%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2000(5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1951(23.6%fib).
USD/CHF: The dollar steadied against the Swiss franc on Monday as investors prepare for a sharp U.S. interest rate rise this week amid signs of a weakening global economy.

Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9681(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9726(10DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9596(50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9499 (50%fib).
USD/JPY: The dollar strengthened against the Japanese yen on Monday ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve meeting's outcome later this week. Investors widely expect the U.S. Federal Reserve to raise interest rates by another 75 basis points when it concludes a two-day policy meeting on Wednesday. The Fed is expected to opt for another 75-basis-point hike rather than a larger move to quell stubbornly-high inflation as the likelihood of a recession over the next year rises to 40%.Strong resistance can be seen at 137.40 (5DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 139.89(23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 135.65 (38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 134.65 (Lower BB).
