Daily chart

The bullish doji reversal confirmed on Friday has opened up upside towards the 10-day moving average (MA), currently at 0.7100.

The pair may close above that bearish (downward sloping) average today if the US Personal Spending and core PCE – Fed’s preferred measure of inflation – due today at 12:30 GMT miss expectations, validating Fed’s patience on rates.

Friday’s US GDP released indeed carried a big beat on the headlines. The details, however, revealed a slowdown in consumer spending – a main engine of the US economy – indicating the world’s biggest economy remains on track for a more pronounced slowdown in the coming quarter than the one seen in the first couple of months of 2019.
