EUR/USD: The euro edged higher against dollar on Wednesday moves were limited as the market looked to U.S. Federal Reserve's next policy meeting. Investors are awaiting the Federal Reserve's Jan. 25-26 meeting for hawkish signals as markets now bet on at least four hikes this year, likely starting in March. The dollar was slightly lower, holding near a weekly high, after a surge in U.S. yields resulted in sharp gains this week against the euro amid growing bets the Federal Reserve will raise rates. The euro was flat, back on its 50-day moving average at $1.1333 after in the previous day it had its sharpest daily drop in a month. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1347 (38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1385 (23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1318 (50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1286 (61.8% fib).
GBP/USD: Sterling strengthened against dollar on Wednesday after higher-than-expected British inflation data added to pressure on the Bank of England to raise interest rates next month. Inflation in Britain rose faster than expected to a near 30-year high in December, intensifying a squeeze on living standards and putting pressure on the Bank of England to raise interest rates again. The annual rate of consumer price inflation increased to 5.4% from November's 5.1%, the highest since March 1992. Financial markets now price in a more than 90% chance that the BoE will raise its main interest rate to 0.5% on Feb. 3. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3634(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3709(23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3573 (50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3539 (21DMA).
USD/CHF: The dollar edged lower against the Swiss franc on Wednesday as traders braced for the Federal Reserve to be more aggressive in tightening monetary policy to tackle inflation.

At 11:02 GMT, the dollar was 0.18 percent lower versus the Swiss franc at 0.9155.

USD/JPY: The dollar initially declined against the Japanese yen on Wednesday but recovered ground as the market looked to U.S. Federal Reserve's next policy meeting where it is widely expected to raise rates in an attempt to quell surging inflation.
