EUR/USD: The euro was little changed against dollar on Tuesday, as traders avoided taking out big positions before the Fed meeting. Trading in currencies was largely subdued, ahead of this week’s Federal Reserve two-day meeting ending on Wednesday, where no change to policy is expected. The market will pay close attention to comments from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, who is likely to face questions over whether improving conditions warrant a withdrawal of monetary easing. Most analysts, though, expect him to say such talk is premature, which could put downward pressure on Treasury yields and the dollar. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2118 (23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2159 (Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2059 (5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2038 (38.2%fib).

Investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of the Fed’s policy meeting ending on Wednesday, where the U.S. central bank is expected to confirm that it will maintain its easy monetary policy to bolster the economy. Sterling was 0.02% lower at $1.3893, off last week's top of $1.4009. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3917 (23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3971(Higher BB ).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3853(5DMA),a break below could take the pair towards 1.3806(38.2%fib ).

Many investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of the Fed meeting that ends on Wednesday, when the U.S. central bank is expected to confirm that it will maintain its easy monetary policy to bolster the economy.

In a quarterly report released after Tuesday’s rate review, the BOJ revised up its growth forecasts and stuck to its view the world’s third-largest economy would recover as robust U.S. and Chinese demand underpins exports. The Bank of Japan projected on Tuesday that inflation will fail to reach its 2% target during its governor’s term through early 2023, as fresh curbs to combat a spike in COVID-19 cases overshadow the boost to growth from solid global demand. Strong resistance can be seen at 108.45(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 108.59(14DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 107.82 (23.6%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 107.23(Lower BB).
