Euro Back Below 1.08 After FED’s Jefferson Comments

EURUSD continues to find resistance around the 1.08 level, having peaked just above earlier today, but reversed back down pretty fast. FOMC members continue to remain evasive about announcing the first rate cut, which continues to provide a bid for the US dollar.

EUR/USD Chart H4 – Returning Back to the 2-Week Range

FED member Jefferson appeared earlier today, confirming again that rates remain higher for longer. Jefferson’s comments mentioned inflation on six separate headlines (out of 9). Clearly he’s concerned about inflation. Jefferson is a permanent voting member on the Federal Reserve as a result of being a governor. EUR/USD made a quick reversal, and fell below 1.08 again, however the 200 SMA (purple) is holding as support for now.
