US Dollar Squaring Up Ahead of the FOMC Meeting Minutes

US Dollar Squaring Up Ahead of the FOMC Meeting Minutes

This week, the USD has been tentative because traders are awaiting Wednesday’s FOMC Meeting Minutes. Let’s take a look at the USD Index, the USD/JPY, EUR/USD and GBP/USD.

The USD index shows that the greenback is trading at the crossroads, trying to decide whether the early July bullish attempt will sustain and revive some USD-strength, or whether June’s rounded top should be respected to give way to USD-weakness. The USD/JPY is bearish heading into tomorrow’s event risk, but is still overall in consolidation mode. The EUR/USD is stalling, but looks ready to continue the prevailing bearish trend. The GBP/USD is stalling as well, but looks ready to continue a prevailing bullish trend.
