Moreover, seems that markets have majorly ignored poor German PPI this morning providing no bearish impetus to the euro.

Overview:                                                         Today the pair keeps its bearish tone dipping under the level of 102.00 as chances of Fed rate hike this Wednesday are fading. However, prevailing uncertainty around BOJ monetary policy decision also is limiting pair’s movement range. Moreover, the pair will keep thin trading range, as traders remain cautious ahead of both central banks decisions. Expectedly, BOJ and the Fed announcements will trigger fresh wave of volatility across the market that will knock out the pair out of its mid-term tight trading range.

Overview:                                                         The pair fails to keep its trading range above the level of 0.9800, which the dollar has been holding since Friday. The pair has dropped to its session lows that are marked at 0.9767 spot as strong selling pressure behind the dollar hits the market this Tuesday. Moreover, risk aversion sentiments are gathering pace lately supporting Swiss franc’s safe haven status. Nothing important is scheduled in Swiss economic calendar so the pair will follow global market sentiments, while US will announce housing data later in NY session.
