13:45 (GMT+1) USA/USD Fed Chair Powell speaks
15:00 JOLTs Job Openings May
The EUR/USD pair has been floating around the 1.12 USD level since last Friday, with no significant upward or downward movement. This is also due to the fact that investors may have some doubts about the Fed's interest rate decision at the next meeting. Accordingly, the focus today will be on the statements of Fed Chairman Powell. These could further strengthen the Dollar, or even take some wind out of its sails.
On the technical side, the 1.12 level is currently a strong support line. If this is breached, the next support at 1.1190 must first be breached sustainably in order to release further downward potential. Currently, the resistance at 1.1218 is located on the upper side. The price has to breach this resistance first in order to reach the first target at 1.1230, and with a stronger impulse it could also target the 1.1260.
The AUD/USD pair is similar to the EUR/USD pair today. However, after it had reached yesterday's short-target the pair has already dropped significantly in early trading and is currently trading at the $0.6948 level. If further downward potential opens up, the next target may be reached at 0.6929. On the upper side, the resistance at 0.6995 needs to be breached in order to gain room to move higher.
