US Dollar (.DXY) Index at 98.89 hanging just above the make or break support at 98.50, but requires a rise above 99.35 for a confirmed reversal signal.

EUR at 1.0911 came off the highs after being rejected at 1,0950 the major resistance, keeping open the possibility of a downward correction to 1.0840 and then 1.0700. Thursday’s ECB meet may turn out to be a market driver and may not.

Sterling at 1.2870 ranged within 1.2750-1.2900 as expected, this may continue for the last 2 sessions this week.

USD/JPY at 111.22 stalled as expected after hitting a high of 111.77 smack in the middle of the target resistance at 111.50-112.00, as it waits for the BOJ meet conclusion Thursday morning, Key support unchanged at 110.00.

AUD (Aussie) at 0.7487 tested and bounced from the lower end of the range at 0.7450-0.7600. The lack of Southside momentum may drive it up to 0.7550 again before we see any clear directional move.
