EUR/USD, GBP/USD Bounce from Chart Support Ahead of FOMC

Forex Talking Points:

– Today marks the start of the two-day meeting at the Federal Reserve in which the bank will decide upon the September interest rate decision.

The bigger question is how confident the Fed will appear to be towards a December rate hike and how hawkish they may be as we turn the page into 2019.

– Both EUR/USD and GBP/USD continue to exhibit varying forms of strength as the US Dollar remains weak. Meanwhile, Yen weakness remains even more prominent than USD-weakness, and this keeps the door open for bullish strategies in pairs like EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY.
