    Eyes 50% Fibo

    The pair is now trading within a striking distance from 1.4252 (50% of 1.4668-1.3835). The demand for the US dollars remains intact as many in the markets believe the Fed is likely to surprise with its less dovish/slightly hawkish stance.

    The UK data calendar is light; hence the spot is at the mercy of overall market sentiment. In the US session, the advance retail sales release may influence expectations surrounding tomorrow’s FOMC rate decision.
