The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) retained the range-bound price action from earlier this week despite the mixed batch of data coming out of the world’s largest economy, and the greenback may continue to track sideways going into October amid the threat of a government shutdown.

In light of the limited reaction to the data prints from earlier this week, it seems as though market participants are largely waiting for on a near-term resolution to the debt limit, but we’ve been here before and the threat of a U.S. default is likely to be short-lived as a bill that would keep the government running for a few more month makes its way through Congress.

Nevertheless, we have more Fed officials scheduled to speak ahead of the highly anticipated Non-Farm Payrolls report, including Chairman Ben Bernanke, and the dollar may face increased volatility in the days ahead as Kansas City Fed President Esther George, the lone dissenter on the FOMC, argues that the committee should start with a $15B taper.

AUDUSD Daily

  • Downward Trend Taking Shape; Lower High Carved in September
  • Watch Negative Slope on Relative Strength Index
  • Interim Resistance: 0.9500 (38.2 retracement) to 0.9515 (1.618 expansion)
  • Interim Support: 0.9290 Pivot to 0.9270 (100.0 expansion)

Three of the four components rallied against the greenback, led by the Japanese Yen, while the Australian dollar bucked the trend as market sentiment waned.

Indeed, the near-term outlook for the AUDUSD is looking increasingly bearish as a downward trend appears to be taking shape, and the pair may face a more pronounced decline next week should the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) interest rate decision heighten bets for another rate cut.

As a result, we will keep a close eye on the downside targets, and we may see the RBA make further attempts to talk down its local currency to further assist in the rebalancing of the real economy.
