-The dollar caught its breath in Asian trading on Thursday, holding above lows hit earlier this week as investors awaited this weekend's first round of voting in France's presidential election.
-The dollar index, which tracks the U.S. currency against a basket of six major rivals, was slightly higher on the day at 99.752 (DXY), moving away from a three-week low of 99.465 plumbed on Tuesday.
The Beige Book showed the economy expanded at a modest-to-moderate pace between mid-February and the end of March, but inflation pressures remained in check despite more difficulties in attracting and retaining workers.
-The euro edged up 0.1 percent to $1.07200 , and was expected to tread water ahead of this weekend's vote.
-Centrist Emmanuel Macron held on to his lead as favorite to emerge as the eventual victor, a closely watched poll showed, although it indicated that the outcome of the first round of voting on Sunday was too close to call. Millions of French voters remain undecided, making this the least predictable vote in France in decades, and raising fears of a potential surprise result that could spread turmoil in markets.
-Data released early on Thursday showed Japan's exports rose in March at the fastest pace in more than two years, though fears of trade friction clouded the outlook. Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso, who heads Japan for a newly-created bilateral economic dialogue with the United States, said on Wednesday that Japan has less room to compromise with the United States under a bilateral trade deal.
-Against its perceived safe-haven Japanese counterpart, the dollar was up 0.1 percent at 108.99 yen , pulling away from five-month lows touched on Monday.
-Sterling added 0.2 percent to $1.2797 after notching a more than six-month high of $1.2908 on Tuesday following British Prime Minister Theresa May's call for an early general election ahead of Brexit negotiations.
-Oil prices regained some ground on Thursday after steep losses the previous day, with a slight drop in U.S. crude inventories stoking hopes that a global supply overhang might slowly retreat.
Brent crude futures were at $53.08 per barrel at 0430 GMT, up 15 cents, or 0.3 percent, from their last close.
-U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up 12 cents, or 0.2 percent, to $50.56 a barrel.

EUR/USD Intraday: rebound.
Pivot: 1.0700

Our preference: long positions above 1.0700 with targets at 1.0740 & 1.0765 in extension.
Alternative scenario: below 1.0700 look for further downside with 1.0685 & 1.0655 as targets.

The main events on April 26, 2017

The Australian and New Zealand dollars moved lower against their U.S. counterpart on Wednesday, after disappointing inflation data from Australia, although sentiment on the greenback was also vulnerable amid sustained uncertainties surrounding U.S. politics.

Gold eased 0.12% to $1,265.75 a troy ounce.

The main events on April 27, 2017

The dollar held gains against the yen on Thursday after U.S. President Donald Trump's tax plan offered no fresh surprises, slowing the greenback's rally, while the market awaited the European Central Bank's upcoming monetary policy decision.

 USD/JPY changed hands at 111.14, up 0.10%, while AUD/USD traded at 0.7487, up 0.19%. EUR/USD rose 0.06% to 1.0911. USD/CAD traded at 1.3533, down 0.63%.
The U.S. dollar index eased 0.10% to 98.75.

Gold prices rebounded mildly in Asia on Thursday as investors came in after a recent sharp dip following the French election results and as investors took positions on potential geopolitical risks on the Korean peninsula where the U.S. has moved to setup a sophisticated anti-missile system to deter North Korea from launching ballistic missiles.
Gold rose 0.28% to $1,276.33 a troy ounce.

Oil prices dipped on Thursday, weighed down by a general sentiment of globally bloated markets, though traders said that prices seemed to have found support around current levels.

WTI is trading at $49.37 per barrel, down 25 cents, or 0.5 percent from their last close. WTI has lost around 8.5 percent in value from its April peak.

Brent is trading at $51.62 per barrel, down 20 cents, or 0.4 percent.
