• On offers for the fourth consecutive session.
• Surging US bond yields underpin USD.
• Bears awaiting a break below 1.19 handle.
The pair stalled its overnight modest rebound and moved back closer to over one-week low touched in the previous session. The ongoing upsurge in the US Treasury bond yields underpinned the US Dollar demand and has been a sole factor weighing on the major.
Market participants now seemed convinced that the Fed would continue with its gradual monetary policy tightening cycle through 2018 and lifted the 10-year bond yield to a 10-month high, which eventually helped the greenback to extend its post-NFP recovery move.
In absence of any major market moving economic releases from the Euro-zone, the USD price dynamics would continue to act as an exclusive driver of the pair’s momentum through the European trading session. Later in the day, the US economic docket, featuring the release of import prices and final wholesale inventories data, might also provide some short-term impetus.
The key focus, however, would be on this week’s other US macro data, namely the latest inflation figures, which might turn out to be a key determinant of the pair’s near-term trajectory.
