Good Morning Traders!
It is Wednesday 21st of June, here are some things to look out for.


The dollar rose against the majority of the G-10 currencies, while Treasuries fell slightly, as investors braced for hawkish remarks from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell during his semiannual testimony before Congress later in the day. European government bonds fell alongside UK gilts, proving a cautionary tale for global central banks fighting inflation and markets betting they're nearing the end of their tightening cycles. China said US President Joe Biden had made a "public political provocation" by referring to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping as a dictator, as new tensions arose in bilateral ties just days after the two sides met to try to calm things down.
