EUR/USD Daily Forecast – U.S. Dollar Is Flat Ahead Of Fed Interest Rate Decision

EUR/USD Stays Near Resistance At 1.2130

EUR/USD is currently testing the resistance at 1.2130 while the U.S. dollar is losing ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index did not manage to settle above the resistance at the 50 EMA near 90.60 and pulled back below 90.50. If the U.S. Dollar Index settles below 90.50, it will head towards the support at 90.30 which will be bullish for EUR/USD.

Today, foreign exchange market traders will stay focused on the Fed Interest Rate Decision. The rate is expected to stay unchanged, and the market will pay attention to Fed’s commentary and economic projections. Any signs that Fed is worried about rising inflation could provide support to the American currency. However, it remains to be seen whether Fed is ready to signal that inflation is a problem before it sees additional data.

Traders will also have a chance to take a look at Building Permits and Housing Starts reports from the U.S. Analysts expect that Buidling Permits increased by 0.9% month-over-month in May while Housing Starts grew by 2.5%.
