EUR/USD: The euro declined on Tuesday as dollar gained after Federal Reserve officials served a reminder that borrowing costs won't drop any time soon. The latest catalyst was two Fed officials saying on Monday monetary policy will need to stay restrictive for "some time" to bring inflation back down to the central bank's 2% target. Strong economic data on Monday boosted the dollar to 11-month highs and the 10-year Treasury yield to a fresh multi-year peak. Traders are attaching a 26% chance of another U.S. rate hike in November and a 45% chance of an increase by December, according to CME Group's FedWatch Tool. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0518 (5DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.0546(38.2%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0460 (23.6%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.0427(Lower BB).
GBP/USD: Sterling fell to a new 6-1/2-month low against the dollar on Tuesday on concerns about the economic outlook and expectations that the Bank of England might be done with rate hikes. The gloom around the U.K. economy cleared a bit last week, as growth for the year's first quarter was revised significantly upwards. Still, concerns about the state of the economy recently supported the pound selloff.Britain's economy displayed apparent recession signals a couple of weeks ago, a day after the Bank of England called to halt its long run of interest rate increases. Sterling hit $1.2061, its lowest level since mid-March, and was last down 0.1% at $1.2075. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2144(5DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2177 (38.2%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2066 (23.6%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2033(Lower BB).
USD/CHF: The U.S. dollar steadied against Swiss franc on Tuesday after Swiss inflation dipped and came in slightly below expectations.

The consumer price index decreased by 0.1% in September compared to the level recorded by the Federal Statistics Office for August and was 1.7% higher compared to September 2022. The dollar was up 0.5% against the Swiss franc at 0.9215 at a six month high, Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9233 (23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9252(Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9182(5DMA ), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9140(38.2%fib).
USD/JPY: The dollar just shy of the 150 level on Tuesday as traders were cautions that Japanese authorities might intervene to prop up the currency. Japanese currency on the brink of weakening past the psychological 150 per dollar level, as surging U.S. Treasury yields kept the dollar firmly on the front foot. Japanese Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki said on Tuesday authorities were watching the currency market closely and stood ready to respond, but also said any decision on currency market intervention would be based on volatility, not specific yen levels.
