Today’s Morning Trades 07.24.2017 – NZDUSD, CADCHF, CHFJPY

*Good morning/afternoon everyone!*

The U.S. dollar is trading lower against most of the major currencies this morning with USD/JPY dropping to a 5 week low. The Federal Reserve meets this week and while their guidance is not expected to change (which means they’ll still maintain a positive and hawkish outlook for the U.S. economy), investors are starting to doubt the likelihood of a year end rate hike in light of persistently weaker U.S. data. The euro which was initially hit by weaker PMIs has since recovered all of those losses. GBP is above 1.30, AUD is pointing back upwards and the Canadian dollar continues to take aim at 1.25. This is an important week for the U.S. dollar with the FOMC rate decision, Q2 GDP, testimonies by Jared Kushner and Manafort (a campaign manager) before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Russian interference in the election. The earnings season will also kick off with nearly 20% of S&P 500 companies reporting this week.
