The overall outlook for the Forex market appears to be bearish for the Euro and Pound, and cautious for the Australian Dollar, while the US Dollar is expected to gain strength. Here’s a summary of the key points:


Key Takeaways:

  • EURUSD: Bears in control after Powell downplayed March rate cut. Sell if price breaks below 1.079 support.
  • AUDUSD: Down after Fed decision. Look for sell opportunities at support levels (0.6538, 0.6510).
  • JPY Carry Trades: Downward pressure due to lower US Treasury yields. Look for bearish setups in JPY crosses like AUD/JPY.
  • GBPUSD: Mixed outlook. Dovish BoE and strong US data could push pair lower below 1.265.


Market Recap:

  • Jerome Powell’s statement dampened hopes of a March Fed rate cut, causing the EURUSD to fall sharply.
  • The Australian dollar also weakened due to the Fed’s decision and dovish RBA expectations.
  • JPY carry trades face pressure as US Treasury yields continue to decline.
  • The Bank of England kept rates unchanged but hinted at possible easing later in the year, impacting GBPUSD.
