EUR/USD: The euro strengthened against dollar on Tuesday as uncertainty remained on whether Congress will clear a U.S. debt ceiling deal . A handful of hard-right Republican lawmakers said on Monday they would oppose a deal to raise Washington's $31.4 trillion debt ceiling, in a sign that the bipartisan agreement could face a rocky path through Congress before the U.S. runs out of money next week. The euro was last up 0.28% at $1.0733 , having earlier hit a two-month low. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0762(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.0772(23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0704 (50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.0633(61.8%fib).
GBP/USD: Sterling rose against a weaker dollar on Tuesday, but stickier than expected British inflation remains in focus ahead of a quiet week for the country’s data calendar.

At 1013 GMT, the pound was 0.5% higher against the dollar at $1.2416, and 0.35% up against the euro at 86.39 pence.

A handful of Republican lawmakers have said they will oppose the agreement, in a sign that the bipartisan effort could face a rocky path through Congress . Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9060(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 09087 (Daily high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9011 (38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 0.8996(14DMA).
USD/JPY: The U.S. dollar pulled back from six-month peaks against the yen as Japanese officials gave their currency a nudge, as investors kept a wary eye on policy makers. Japan will closely watch currency market moves and respond appropriately as needed, the country's top currency diplomat said on Tuesday after financial authorities met in response to a weakening in the yen to its softest in six months versus the dollar.The yen strengthened on news of the meeting, and held onto those gains, with the dollar last down 0.2% at 140.16 yen having earlier risen as high as 140.93, its highest since November 2022.Strong resistance can be seen at 141.04(23.6%fib) an upside break can trigger rise towards 141.48(Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen 139.42(38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 138.94(11DMA)
