Most Read: US Dollar (DXY) Latest: Markets Ignore Fed Rate Pushback, GBP/USD and EUR/USD

The Euro continues this week’s move higher against a weakening US dollar and is touching levels last seen over four months ago. The single currency is higher against a range of currencies this week as markets pare back elevated rate cut expectations. In comparison, the US dollar keeps moving lower with the US dollar index back at levels last seen at the end of July. US Treasury yields are also pressing against multi-month lows as traders front-run a series of US rate cuts next year. According to the latest CME predictions, the Fed is set to cut rates by 25 basis points at seven FOMC meetings next year.

All three simple moving averages are supportive and while the CCI indicator suggests the pair are overbought, the reading is not in extreme territory yet. A continuation of the recent multi-week series of higher lows and higher highs looks likely.
