The dollar needs the rates growth

Last week main event was the Federal Reserve Chief’s speech at the economic symposium in Jackson Hole. The inflation risks decrease was noted in the last FOMC "minute", thus the monetary regulator starts moving away from their conservative views on the monetary policy rapid tightening.

The downtrend is in its active phase in the euro, but the euro/dollar decrease was limited by the support level of 1.3242 from which the pair could rebound to 1.3270, and in the Asian session - up to 1.3290. Then the pair fell again to the support level of 1.3220.

The support levels are 1.3200- 1.3220, and the resistance levels are 1.3270 - 1.3290.

MACD is in a negative territory.

Trading recommendations

The single currency needs to break through the resistance level of 1.3330 and to consolidate above it to continue the growth. Then we can expect the growth to 1.3375 and 1.3430.

The market participants can take a break to evaluate the British currency prospects. The pound is significantly oversold and with the important macroeconomic statistics publication absence traders can start to take profit on the short positions.

The GBP/USD is consolidating after the falling to 1.6570, however, the pair continues to trade below the 66th figure which successfully copes the resistance role. The pressure on the pound is still preserved and its prospects are quite bleak.
