•15:00 US Fed Chair Powell Testifies
EUR/USD: The euro recovered marginally against dollar on Wednesday after data a day earlier showed inflation had scaled 13-year highs in June amid supply constraints and higher travel-related costs. The greenback is likely to take its direction from Fed Chair Jerome Powell's two-day testimony before Congress which starts later on Wednesday. Markets are seeking clues on when the central bank might consider tapering its stimulus and whether it still holds the oft-reiterated view that higher inflation is transitory. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1871 (38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1896 (21 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1796 (23.6%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1764(Lower BB)
GBP/USD: Sterling climbed against the dollar on Wednesday as UK inflation rose more than expected to its highest in almost three years, putting the focus of the Bank of England's plan to keep its huge stimulus programme in place. Inflation jumped in June further above the BoE's 2% target to hit 2.5%, its highest since August 2018. Higher prices for food, fuel and used cars as the economy bounced back from its lockdown slump were among the drivers. By 09:05 GMT, the pound was up 0.2% at $1.3843. Against the euro , sterling gained 0.2% to 85.13 pence. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3867 (50% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3930 (61.8%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3793 (38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3737 (Lower BB).
USD/CHF: The dollar strengthened against the Swiss franc on Wednesday after a jump in U.S. inflation fuelled expectations of a quicker end to Federal Reserve stimulus. The U.S. consumer price index rose 0.9% in June, data showed on Tuesday, above market expectations and the largest gain since June 2008.Investors are watching the semi-annual testimony of Fed Chair Jerome Powell to Congress on Wednesday and Thursday for more clues on whether the Fed will take more aggressive steps to halt rising inflation.At 10:12 GMT, the dollar was 0.07 percent higher versus the Swiss franc at 0.9191. Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9193(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9219 (23.6%fib%).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9173(50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9150(61.8% fib).
USD/JPY: The dollar edged lower against the Japanese yen Wednesday after U.S. inflation data stoked fears of earlier-than-expected policy tightening by the Federal Reserve. Data on Tuesday showed U.S. consumer prices in June rose by the most in 13 years. Focus now shifts to Powell's testimony before the Congress for any views on the rising price pressures and possible tightening of monetary policy.At 10:12 GMT, the dollar was 0.12 percent lower versus the yen at 110.48. Strong resistance can be seen at 110.65(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 110.80 (July 7th High).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 110.27(5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 110.18(23.6%fib).
