EUR/USD: The euro dipped against dollar on Monday as concerns about pandemic pushed investors to seek safety in dollar, while investors watched for clues from central bankers ahead of Tuesday's U.S. inflation print. Investors will look to U.S. inflation data on Tuesday and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's economic testimony on Wednesday and Thursday as they gauge expectations for the Fed to dial back on stimulus. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1871 (38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1929 (50%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1837 (5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1799(23.6%fib).

He is expected to eliminate rules on mask-wearing and social contact, and the instruction to work from home.

The Canadian dollar was trading 0.01% lower at 1.2454 to the greenback. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2477 (23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2556 (9Th July high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2477 (38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2378 (21DMA).

Economists polled expect U.S. consumer price for June to have risen 0.4% from May and 4.0% from a year earlier after two straight months of sharp gains in prices.
