EUR/USD: The euro strengthened on Monday as dollar weakened on bets the Federal Reserve will slow the pace of its interest rates hikes. U.S. manufacturing activity, in particular, slowed less than expected, lending weight to bets that the Federal Reserve might not be more aggressive than anticipated at its September meeting, denting the dollar. Traders currently price about 31% probability that the U.S.Fed would keep its current 75 basis-point pace of rate hikes at its next meeting in September, with 69% odds for a smaller half-point increase. The big economic focus for this week will be the monthly U.S. jobs report on Friday. The euro benefited from the general dollar weakness, with the single currency rising 0.3% to $1.0253, continuing its consolidation near the middle of its range over the past week and a half. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0262(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.0356(Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0204(5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.0102(23.6%fib).

The pound was little moved by survey data on Monday showing British manufacturing output and new orders declined in July at the fastest rate since May 2020, with expectations for a slowing economy priced in by many traders. Sterling was 0.2% higher against the dollar at $1.2270. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2284(50%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2331(61.8%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2168(38.2%fib),a break below could take the pair towards 1.2058(11DMA).

The Canadian dollar was trading down 0.03 at 1.2844 to the greenback.
