The EUR/USD pair gains traction for the fifth consecutive day during the early European session on Wednesday. The decline of the US Dollar (USD) lends some support to the major pair. As of writing, EUR/USD is trading near 1.1001, gaining 0.12% on the day. (FXStreet)

The Japanese Yen (JPY) surrenders a major part of its intraday gains to a two-and-half-month high against the US Dollar (USD) in reaction to Bank of Japan (BoJ) board member Seiji Adachi's less hawkish remarks. Downplaying speculation that the BoJ is considering ending negative interest rates, Adachi said that the economy is yet to reach a stage where the central bank could debate an exit from ultra-easy monetary policy. This, along with a generally positive risk tone, is seen undermining the safe-haven JPY. (FXStreet)

The GBP/USD pair gains momentum above 1.2700 during the early European session on Wednesday. The uptick of the pair is supported by the weaker US Dollar (USD) and lower US Treasury bond yields. The pair currently trades near 1.2715, up 0.19% on the day. (FXStreet)

USD/CHF touched a 13-week low at 0.8757 during the Asian session on Wednesday and recovered some of its intraday losses, trading near 0.8770 at the time of writing. (FXStreet)

The USD/CAD pair reached a nine-week low at 1.3541 during the Asian session on Wednesday, currently trading below 1.3550. The decline in the USD/CAD pair is attributed to the accommodative remarks from US Federal Reserve (Fed) Governor Christopher Waller. Waller's suggestion that the Federal Reserve may not insist on maintaining high interest rates if inflation consistently declines has likely contributed to the downward pressure on the Loonie pair.

NZD/USD retraces its intraday gains as the US Dollar rebounds during the early European session on Wednesday. However, the NZD/USD pair received upward support after the release of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) interest rate decision. RBNZ board members decided to keep the interest rate steady at 5.50%. This decision aligns with widespread expectations in the market. (FXStreet)

USD/MXN halts its three-day winning streak due to the softer US Dollar (USD), which could be attributed to the mixed remarks from the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) members. Moreover, the mixed data from the United States (US) failed to heal the Greenback. The USD/MXN pair trades around 17.1400 during the European session on Wednesday. (FXStreet)

Indian Rupee (INR) gathers strength on Wednesday on the foreign banks' Dollar sales and a weaker US Dollar (USD). The Indian economy is projected to expand by over 6% this year, bringing its Gross Domestic Product close to $4 trillion. Additionally, India’s economy is anticipated to be the fastest-growing on the globe in the coming years, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). (FXStreet)

On Wednesday, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) set the USD/CNY central rate for the trading session ahead at 7.1031 as compared to the previous day's fix of 7.1132 and  7.1340 Reuters estimates. (FXStreet)

Western Texas Intermediate (WTI), the US crude oil benchmark, is trading around $76.60 so far on Wednesday. The recovery of WTI prices is bolstered by the possibility that OPEC+ will cut production and the weaker US Dollar (USD). (FXStreet)

Gold prices have been strengthening largely on the back of the bearish narrative associated with the US dollar in 2024. Markets have been swiftly ticking higher but may be slightly impatient. Although the implied Fed funds futures (see table below) suggests roughly 85bps of cumulative interest rate cuts by December 2024, the Fed along with other central banks have been rather cautious in their language and highly data dependent which could easily sway forecasts should economic data oppose the current trend.

Bitcoin continues to threaten the $38k mark but remains unable to find acceptance above the key level. The reason the world’s largest cryptocurrency has held onto its gains may have to do with an increase in capital inflow from institutional investors over the past week, per a report by CoinShares.
