Dollar drops as European trading starts.
EUR/USD has moved to a high of 1.1894, reaching a 200-hour moving average at 1.1893 as we can see the dollar gives up some ground to start European trading.
GBP/USD is nearing 1.3900 while AUD/USD has moved up to close in on a test of the 0.7600 level.
Also, USD/CAD is pushed down 0.3% to near 1.2300 while NZD/USD has broken to new highs in nearly three weeks just above the 0.7100 level.
Evidently, it seems like we are settling back into the push and pull mode in the dollar ahead of the Fed which will provide more clarity tomorrow.

AUD/NZD continues a 5-week low streak as RBA give the green light,
Central bank divergence and the RBNZ rate hike and RBA policy make today the difference between the two pairs.
This alone can take the AUD/NZD down back to lowest as it did in May at a near 1.0600.
The pair is already breaking to fresh five-week lows now below the 61.8 retracement level of its recent upside move last month @ 1.0681.
This puts pressure on trendline support level at 1.0641 before May 27th low at 1.0600 which comes back into play.
With market expectations for a RBNZ rate hike rising and the RBA not expected to budge until November at the earliest, there is little chance for the NZD to support against the AUD for now.
The big question is, how will the RBNZ will respond to the discussed potential raising rates in November 2021.
If they push back against that, it will stir any major downside momentum in AUD/NZD that comes from this supposed policy divergence the market is building up right now.

Trading leveraged derivative products such as Foreign Exchange (Forex) and Contracts for Difference (CFDs) carries a high level of risk to your capital.
These derivative products, many of which are leveraged, may not be appropriate for all investors. The effect of leverage is that both gains and losses are magnified. The prices of leveraged derivative products may change to your disadvantage very quickly, it is possible for you to lose more than your invested capital and you may be required to make further payments.
Before deciding to invest in any financial product, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, trading knowledge and experience and affordability. You should only trade in Forex and CFDs if you have sufficient knowledge and experience of the risks involved in trading such products and if you are dealing with money that you can afford to lose. You should seek independent professional financial advice if you do not understand the risks involved.
