EUR/USD has consolidated recovered position after yesterdays sharp fall. Now the pair is trading in narrow range near 1.1250 area with slight bearish mood. The pair recovered 130 pips on the back of weakened dollars positions as softer US Core CPI data coupled with yesterdays dovish Fed statement continue to weight US currency.

At the moment the pair is trading at 1.1249 with todays support and resistance levels at 1.1052 and 1.1382.

However, after the pair met resistance near this level it dipped to this day low at 1,4222. Now traders will shift their attention toward developments surrounded EU referendum scheduled next Thursday. Britain calendar is data free today so traders will find some cues in US Building Permits for further momentum.

USD/CAD is recovering after yesterdays sharp fall from nine-day highs marked at 1.3090.

Amid data dry calendar from Japan, traders will focus their attention on the US Building Permits due later this day. Currently the pair is trading at 104.31 level with todays support and resistance levels at 103.19 and 105.69 marks.
