Talking Points:

In this weeks webinar the US Dollar remains in focus ahead of Wednesday’s highly anticipated FOMC rate decision. This is just one of many central bank events this week that may affect the price action for US Dollar based pairs including the GBP/USD, EUR/USD, and USD/JPY. Technically the US Dollar is little changed for Monday’s trading but the DXY remains above its 10 day EMA (exponential moving average) at 97.12. If prices close above this point, it will mark the third session that the DXY has closed above this average for June. Knowing this, traders should continue to monitor the 10 day EMA ahead of this week's heavily weighted economic calendar.
