EUR/USD: The euro declined against dollar on Tuesday as dollar was lifted by rising geopolitical risk over Ukraine and a likely hawkish stance from the Federal Reserve at its policy meeting this week. Markets until recently had mostly shrugged off the massing of Russian troops on Ukraine's borders, but tensions have ratcheted up lately. NATO said it was putting forces on standby and reinforcing eastern Europe with more ships and fighter jets, in what Russia denounced as an escalation of tensions. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1310 (38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1341(50%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1264 (23.6%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1244 (Lower BB).
GBP/USD: Sterling declined against dollar on Tuesday as investors remained cautious on risk assets amid growing tensions in Ukraine and bets the Federal Reserve will hike rates.Sterling, which is considered a riskier currency, has been under pressure as investors were nervous about the potential for military conflict in Ukraine. Additionally, markets are bracing for a Fed meeting this week that could signal the removal of its vast stimulus programme. The jitters sent the dollar higher against a basket of currency. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3494(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3569(23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3439 (50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3379 (61.8%fib).
USD/CHF: The dollar rose against the Swiss franc on Tuesday as investors bought greenback amid tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine while awaiting the outcome of the Federal Reserve's policy meeting. The U.S. military put about 8,500 troops on alert to be ready to deploy to Europe if needed, in the latest effort to reassure jittery NATO allies in the face of a Russian military build-up near Ukraine. The euro was down 0.2% at 0848 GMT to $1.1300, trading just off its lowest since Dec. 20 touched on Monday. The dollar index was 0.1% higher at 96.02 , just off its two-week high of 96.135 hit on Monday. Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9202(23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9237(Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9162 (21DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9149 (38.2%fib).
USD/JPY: The dollar strengthened against the Japanese yen on Tuesday as the threat of Russia-Ukraine military conflict and wariness over U.S. monetary policy boosted greenback. The dollar index has gained some 1.5% since Jan. 14. During this period, several banks have raised forecasts for the speed and size of the Fed's policy tightening, a picture that should be clearer at the end of its two-day meeting on Wednesday.The Fed is expected to signal the start of interest rate hikes in March, while potentially indicating how fast it will shrink its holdings of Treasuries and mortgage debt that have swollen its balance sheet past $8 trillion. At 10:43 GMT, the dollar was 0.02 percent lower versus the yen at 113.62 . Strong resistance can be seen at 114.64(23.6% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 114.82 (21DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 113.67 (50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 113.00 (61.8%fib).
