The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) continues to face range-bound prices amid the ongoing deadlock in Congress, but we may see a relief rally take shape over the next 24-hours of trading as U.S. policy makers try to draw up a short-term resolution ahead of the October 17 deadline.

Indeed, the reserve currency appears to be building a short-term base as the U.S. looks to avoid a default, and the dollar may make a move back towards 10,582 (23.6 percentFibonacci expansion) to 10,589 (50.0 percentFibonacci retracement) as there appears to be a bullish divergence in the Relative Strength Index.

However, the fiscal drag may prompt further dollar weakness as it limits the Fed’s scope to taper the asset-purchase program at the October 29-30 meeting, and the central bank may ultimately carry its highly accommodative policy stance into 2014 in order to encourage a stronger recovery.

  • New Downward Trending Channel in Focus; Retains 2013 Range
  • Relative Strength Index Also Highlights Bearish Momentum
  • Interim Resistance: 1.3650-60 (78.6% expansion)
  • Interim Support: 1.3360-70 (38.2% expansion)

Three of the four components weakened against the dollar, led by a 0.56 percent decline in the Euro, and the bearish trend may continue to take shape over the near-term as the European Central Bank (ECB) keeps the door open to further embark on its easing cycle.

With ECB President Mario Draghi scheduled to speak tomorrow at 18:00 GMT, dovish comments from the central bank head may prompt a more meaningful run at 1.3450 region (50.0 percent Fib retracement), and the bearish momentum may continue to gather pace ahead of the next policy meeting on November 7 as the Governing Council mulls more non-standard measures to boost lending to small and medium-sized enterprises (SME).
