(Wednesday) FOMC Statement + press conference;
(Wednesday) Crude oil inventories;
(Friday) EU + US Manufacturing PMI.

Powell will not say directly that FED will decrease % rates and FED will be looking for further economic indicators. So traders will became calm and expecting further economic signals this will be signal for strong corrections;
Oil inventories will continue to increase, as market totally oversupplied and oil price will continue downtrend, if we will not have war expansion in Oman bay;
PMIs became sideways, so next news will be very important, as if PMI will fall, this will be signal for FED to decrease % rates;

US Core CPI still over 2% FED target level, where same time PMI much higher 50 points, unemployment on low level, Fridays retail sales was good. So US economy have all advantages and going well and for June or, probably, July, no any reason for FED to decrease % rates. And it possible that FED will not need to decrease % rates at all, as US economy will continue to go well.
Same time EU do not have where to decrease % rates and looking on this, US economy now have all advantages over EU, that create potential for downtrend on eur/usd and EU equity market.

(Risk of % rates decreasing is falling, US economy is going well)
1 scenario: from 1.1205 possible correction to 1.1310 and then downtrend to 1.1150 1.1110 (or directly from 1.1205);
2 scenario, if risk for % rates decreasing will increase: from 1.1320 to 1.1455.

2 scenario, if risk for % rates decreasing will increase: from 1360 to 1395 and 1432.

(Market strongly oversupplied, inventories will continue uptrend, that will create further pressure on prices, that probably OPEC will no be able to fix in the end of June and totally market have target on $46)
1 scenario: from 52.50 correction to 54.25/80, then downtrend to 50.60 and after its break down next targets 49.40 and 46.00;
