The US dollar continued suffering last week , U.S data was bad than expected . Next week focus will be on FOMC statement , without change of Fed’s policy this month – since the Fed hinted before that the first rate hike could come in June , the US dollar is likely to continue suffering .

Technically , the US dollar index ( which measures the performance of the US Dollar against a basket of currencies: EUR, JPY, GBP, CAD, CHF and SEK ) is under pressure and further down couldn’t be ruled out as long as trades below 98.62 levels .

From Euro-Zone , situations in Greece or Greece with its creditors , I think we have 2 scenarios :

1- Disagreement (most likely) ,If seen , as I see that would be an opportunity to buy EURUSD on dips !!!

2. Agree on some points , If seen , the pair will fluctuate with risk to break higher ………

I think we have third option , but don’t  mention it since I think It’s unlikely  , full agreement !!! If seen , sure it will support the EURO !!!!

The Idea , the EURUSD is far away of a big reversal , still early a bit , so any negative data for EURUSD , Can be an opportunity to buy the EURUSD on dips , unless the Fed comes out with a surprise , the USD remains under pressure …

Same Scenario for GBPUSD , I think the pound is the strongest currency against the US dollar , strategy remains buying on dips !!!

USDJPY consolidates with downside bias , focus will be on BOJ Press Conference  next Thursdays , anyway , let’s highlight the most critical events which affect currency market next week :
