Economic data coming up in the European session

2 min read

A couple of light releases to move things along


The dollar remains a little vulnerable to start the week, with EUR/USD hovering around its 25 February high @ 1.2243 and that remains a key resistance point to watch for now.

GBP/USD is also closing back in on 1.4200 though further resistance is seen from the 24 February high @ 1.4241 so that will be one to be mindful about moving forward.

Major currencies are little changed for now though the dollar is keeping steadier after having seen USD/CNY near 6.40 before reports of intervention by China authorities.

US equities had a solid session yesterday with futures also keeping slightly higher for now, with the Fed continuing to pledge patience on policy and that inflation is likely to be transitory; though we’ll see if there is anything new during the week.
