The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) remains at risk of giving back the advance from back in October (10,354) as it fails to push back above the 10,470 pivot, and the bearish sentiment surrounding the greenback may gather pace ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting on April 30 as the central bank retains a rather dovish tone for monetary policy.

Indeed, the limited reaction to the better-than-expected U.S. data continues to highlight a bearish outlook for the dollar, and it seems as though the reserve currency will continue to carve a series of lower highs & lower lows ahead of the second-half of 2014 as the Fed sticks to its measured approach in normalizing monetary policy.

With that said, we continue to favor ‘selling bounces’ in the greenback, and the USDOLLAR may face fresh lows in the days ahead as Fed Chair Janet Yellen remains reluctant to move away from the zero-interest rate policy (ZIRP).
