The USD desperately held onto some gains against the EUR and GBP but lost ground against JPY, NZD and AUD. Ahead offshore we UK inflation being released tonight, this is expected to remain steady at 2.1%yoy. The market is hoping for some clarification from the Fed tonight with a few Federal Reserve speakers due to speak. Today's Forecast Range USD: 0.9010 - 0.9085
