This week, the market is focused on Fed Chair Jerome Powell's semi-annual Congressional testimony, comments from several Fed officials, and US inflation statistics. According to CME's FedWatch Tool, markets expect a 78% chance of a Fed rate cut in September, with traders also pricing in an increased possibility of a second rate cut in December.
