EUR/USD: The euro rose on Monday as markets focused on the European Central Bank's tools to fight fragmentation in the currency bloc, even as French President Emmanuel Macron lost an absolute majority in the country's parliamentary election.Macron's centrist Ensemble coalition secured the most seats in the National Assembly but fell well short of an absolute majority needed to control parliament, final results showed. Traders shrugged off the election results, with the euro rising 0.2% against the dollar to $1.05155, as Macron was expected to stick with his pro-Europe agenda despite the election result.

The BoE’s new message that it may have to act “forcefully” on interest rates is not unconditional and depends on the persistence of inflation pressures, the central bank’s chief economist said on Friday. The pound is up 0.1% at $1.2236 against the U.S. dollar ,after three consecutive weeks of losses. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2297(38.2%fib),an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2386 (50%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2208(50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2120(61.8%fib).

USD/JPY: The dollar held neat near a 24-year low against Japanese yen on Monday after the Bank of Japan last week renewed its commitment to ultra-easy policy and bucked the trend among global peers to rapidly raise interest rates. The U.S. dollar paused for breath following a volatile week that saw it retreat sharply. However, it recovered half of that by the end of last week as investors continue to assess the outlook for U.S. monetary policy and the risk of recession following the Federal Reserve’s biggest rate increase since 1995. The greenback rose 0.21% to 135.25 yen, heading back toward Wednesday’s peak of 135.60, the highest level since October 1998.
