The U.S. dollar was supported by speculation about the trajectory of interest rates before the Fed announcement tomorrow. While a rate hike this month is very unlikely ,chances for an increase later this year have increased. The probability of a rate hike in June is now about 50 percent while analysts see a 63 percent chance of an increase by December.
The euro weakened against the greenback but was able to remain above the 1.1070-50 support area. We will focus on a break of 1.1070/50 in order to sell the pair EUR/USD towards lower levels at 1.10 and 1.0910. On the upside gains could be limited until 1.1160 and 1.1220. With only one day to go before the FOMC announcement the dollar could be vulnerable to pullbacks as U.S. Retail Sales scheduled for release at 12:30 GMT are forecast to show a marked decline in February.
The pound sterling returned to the slippery slope, falling back below 1.43. As stated in yesterday’s analysis we see a current support at 1.4250/40. Once that support level is significantly breached to the downside we will shift our focus towards lower targets at 1.4170 and 1.4120. Current resistances are seen at 1.4310 and 1.4360.
