Fed Q&A testimony has begun:

The dollar is starting to move lower. The testimony has been rather subdued so far. The Fed chair did imply a slowing of the pace of hikes which is consistent with the skip seen at the last meeting.

The EURUSD has extended to new session highs. The trading range has increased to 51 pips versus 28 pips. The average of the last month has been around 68 pips. The GBPUSD is also moving higher and away from its 200-hour moving average 1.26852. The USDCHF that is just broken below its 100-hour moving average of 0.89534.
