EUR/USD: The euro dipped on Tuesday against dollar as expectations for a massive interest rate raise by the European Central Bank this week eased following media reports that policymakers are considering a smaller hike. Money markets are now pricing in a 67% chance of a 75 bps rate hike, down from almost 90% earlier on Tuesday.Markets also anticipate a further hike worth at least 50 bps at the ECB's October meeting as investors position for front-loaded rate increases before the economic outlook deteriorates further due to the energy shock. Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9974(5DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.0049(38.2%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9892(23.6%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9814(Lower BB).
GBP/USD: Sterling lifted on Tuesday as media reports offered new details on how incoming Prime Minister Liz Truss is planning to tackle Britain’s growing energy crisis. Household bills are due to jump by 80% in October, but a source familiar with the situation has told Reuters that Truss is looking at freezing bills this winter, in a plan that could cost more than the COVID-19 furlough scheme.After winning a leadership race to take over from Boris Johnson, Truss must now tackle an economy heading for recession, soaring prices on fuel and consumer goods, and a currency that is among the world’s worst performing this year. By 0811 GMT, the pound was up 0.38% at $1.1567. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1641(9DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1674(38.2%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1502 (23.6%fib),a break below could take the pair towards 1.1391(Lower BB).
USD/CHF: The dollar strengthened against the Swiss franc on Tuesday as concerns about rapid interest rate hikes to tame inflation boosted dollar. Focus this week will be on the European Central Bank meeting on Thursday, where it is expected to deliver a 75 basis-point interest rate hike to tame surging prices.Traders also expect a big interest rate hike from the U.S. Federal Reserve at its Sept. 20-21 policy meeting.At 13:32 GMT, the dollar was 0.03 percent higher versus the Swiss franc at 0.9806 . Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9833(23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9881 (Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9800(5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9752(38.2%fib)
USD/JPY: The dollar rose past symbolic 142 against yen on Tuesday as the gap between Japanese monetary policy and that elsewhere becomes ever more stark, weighing on the currency. Japanese Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki on Tuesday reiterated that sharp yen moves were "undesirable" and that he was watching rising volatility in the exchange market with a great sense of urgency as the currency hit a fresh 24-year low. The dollar climbed 1.05% to 142.1 yen, the first time it has been at this level since August 1998. Strong resistance can be seen at 142.19(23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 143.10(Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 140.47(5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 140.16(38.2%fib).
