Could Powell bring dollar weakness for EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/CAD?
EUR/USD consolidates, while dollar weakness could come into play for GBP/USD and USD/CAD.
EUR/USD continues to consolidate, as it hits trendline support
EUR/USD remains within consolidation mode, with the pair trading largely sideways over the course of the past week.
That has shown little sign of changing, yet it may take todays Federal Reserve (Fed) chairman Jerome Powell appearance to kick-start the trend once again. For the short term, we have seen the price fall into trendline support, pointing towards a potential rebound. As such, consolidation looks likely to continue, with a break through either $1.1114 or $1.1065 to bring a more directional move for the pair. However, with the potential for a dovish outlook from Powell, the opportunity to buy at trendline support looks attractive.
GBP/USD rebound brings more bullish sentiment
GBP/USD is losing ground this morning, yet the bullish breakout seen last year signals a potential rise to come.
That comes due to the break through $1.221 and $1.225 swing highs. With that in mind, it makes sense to watch out for a potential bullish move in the near future, with a break below $1.2107 required to bring about a more bearish picture once again.
USD /CAD rebound may not last
USD/CAD has been regaining ground overnight, with the pair regaining ground off the back of the losses seen earlier in the week.
Those declines took the pair back into the $1.3251 support level, signaling a potential impending bearish reversal for the pair. A break below that $1.3251 level would be required to bring about a reversal signal. However, with Canadian retail sales and Powell up ahead, there is a good chance that we could be seeing a retracement before the bears come back into play. With that in mind, the 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level at $1.3324 is worth watching out for as a potential reversal level.
