EUR/USD:The euro pulled back from 2-1/2 month highs against dollar on Monday, as a U.S.-Mexico deal over migration boosted the dollar and after sources said European Central Bank policymakers were open to cutting the ECB's policy rate should economic growth worsen. The single currency rocketed last week after the ECB did not - as some had anticipated - hint at interest rate cuts, instead saying rates would stay "at their present levels" until mid-2020.But on Sunday two sources familiar with the ECB's policy discussions said a cut was firmly in play if the bloc's economy was to stagnate again after expanding by 0.4% in the first quarter of the year. The euro was up 0.02 percent at $1.1313. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1339 (Higher Bollinger Band), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1348 (7th June High).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1277 (5 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1228 (Lower Bollinger Bands).
GBP/USD:Britain's pound declined against the dollar on Monday, after data showed the British economy slowed sharply in April with the manufacturing sector proving to be a weak spot as a results of Brexit uncertainty. The economy contracted sharply after the biggest decline in car production since records began, as manufacturers were unable to reverse closures planned for Britain's expected departure from the EU. The pound fell 0.6% to $1.2653 and is on track to post its biggest daily drop since mid-May. Sterling has been stuck around $1.27 as investors await the outcome of the Conservative party leadership contest to decide who will succeed British Prime Minister Theresa May. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2719 (21 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2841 (Higher Bollinger Band).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2660 (11 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2561(31st May low).
USD/CAD: The Canadian dollar was little changed against its broadly stronger U.S. counterpart on Monday, pulling back from an earlier three-month high reached after the United States dropped plans to impose tariffs on Mexican goods. Potential U.S. tariffs on Mexican goods could undermine chances of a new North American trade deal coming into force. Canada sends about 75% of its exports to the United States. Investors in the Canadian dollar run the risk of being "blindsided" by financial market volatility caused by global trade disputes, which has offset the boost for the currency from recent strong employment data, said Scott Lampard, head of global markets at HSBC Bank Canada. The Canadian dollar was last trading nearly unchanged at 1.3266 to the greenback, or 75.38 U.S. cents. The currency, which climbed 1.9% last week, touched its strongest intraday level since March 1 at 1.3226.. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3338 (5 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3400 (Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3230 (23.6 % retracement level), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3181 (Jan 11th low).
USD/JPY: The dollar edged higher against the Japanese yen on Monday, after the United States and Mexico reached a deal to avoid tariffs. Foreign exchange investors had rushed for the safety of the Japanese yen in recent weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump's threat to slap tariffs on Mexico shook investor confidence. The yen shed 0.4% to 108.42 after earlier hitting its weakest since late May, though it remains 3.3% stronger than its levels of April. The dollar index gained 0.22% to 96.78 . The greenback had weakened last week after poor economic data encouraged investors to scale up their bets that the Federal Reserve would soon cut interest rates. Strong resistance can be seen at 108.66 (11 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 109.23 (21 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 108.24 (50% retracement level), a break below could take the pair towards 107.82 (38.2% retracement level).
