Current trend

The pair made several attempts of breaking above a level of 1.5050 yesterday, and managed to consolidate above a level of 1.5070 (38,2% Fibonacci).

Investors will be waiting for today's information on construction orders and US consumer confidence index, but the main attention will be focused tomorrow on the Fed's comments regarding the monetary policy. Investors are particularly interested in the comments on an upcoming interest rate rise that might happen in the middle of this year, according to most analysts.
