Asia Session Recap

The Asian trading session unfolded as anticipated, featuring a relatively subdued market. The Dollar Index (DXY) trended lower to around 103.50, and gold prices briefly touched $1,985/oz before a slight pullback. Crude oil prices strengthened after an initial gap down at the opening, but they might encounter resistance around the $77.00 per barrel region.

Implications for Europe & US Sessions

Scheduled to speak at the Henry Plumb Memorial Lecture in England, Bank of England (BoE) Governor Andrew Bailey may influence the direction of the Pound with his remarks later today. With the Pound having touched 1.2500 last week, it could attempt to surpass this threshold again.
