Markets are expecting news from major central banks holding meetings this week

Main currencies stayed within their ordinary levels today as investors showed no inclination to act awaiting a slew of important economic figures and an upcoming gathering of central banks with monetary policy in the focus.

Considering that tomorrow the Bank of Japan is going to wind up a two-day meeting, the end of the Fed’s gathering on July 1, and forecasted rate hike by the BoE on July 2, investors are bracing for a week filled with news that might show the future way for currencies.
