    Hovers around hourly 50-MA

    The pair now hovers around its hourly 50-MA located at 1.5179 levels. The USD demand came back in Asia as investors look towards the Fed meeting, which is likely to end with a rate hike. An upbeat China data over the weekend also calmed market nerves and increased demand for the USD.

    With an empty data docket in the UK and US, the focus is likely to be on the Us treasury yields; which at the time of writing; were trading higher.
