EUR/USD should be worth keeping an eye on this week, with the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank both set to announce their first monetary policy decision of 2023.
A hawkish Fed versus a dovish ECB dominated the narrative for most of last year, but things seem to have reversed in the new year.

Will this week’s central bank decisions help the pair break higher, or will it kickstart a new trend lower?
