U.S. dollar remains under pressure as traders bet that the Fed will not be able to raise rates at the next meeting. The FedWatch Tool indicates that the Fed may be forced to cut rates in 2023.

Treasury yields show mixed dynamics as the bond market stabilizes after the recent volatility. The yield of 2-year Treasuries settled above the 4.10% level, while the yield of 10-year Treasuries climbed above 3.55%. It remains to be seen whether the continuation of the Treasury yields rebound will provide support to the U.S. dollar as currency traders have mostly ignored the developments in bond markets in recent days.

Today, traders also focused on the GDP Growth Rate report, which missed analyst expectations and served as an additional bearish catalyst for the U.S. dollar.
