Keep below that and sellers could eye a break to the downside if Powell provides some supportive argument on Wednesday.</p><p>Meanwhile, EUR/USD is holding a break below its own 200-day moving average of 1.0841 on the week. However, bids at the 1.0800 mark is still providing some support for the time being. And it could keep that way until the Fed settles the score tomorrow.</p><p>As for trading today, <a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow">keep a watchful eye on the bond market</a>.
