The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) continued to gain ground against most of its major counterparts amid the positive developments coming out of the world’s largest economy, and the rebound may gather pace in November as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) strikes a more neutral for monetary policy.

It seems as though the rebound from 10,354 will continue to take shape amid the renewed interest in the Fed’s ‘taper talk,’ and the USDOLLAR looks poised for a more meaningful correction as the Relative Strength Index breaks out of the bearish momentum dating back to July.

However, the bearish trend may continue to limit the topside for the reserve currency as the dollar continues to carve a series of lower highs paired with lower lows, and the greenback may face additional headwinds over the remainder of the year should the Fed show a greater willingness to carry its highly accommodative policy stance into 2014.

  • Carves Higher High; Retains Bullish Trend From July
  • Bullish Relative Strength Index Momentum Falters
  • Interim Resistance: 1.3830 (61.8 retracement)
  • Interim Support: 1.3490 (50.0 retracement) to 1.3455 (50.0 expansion)

The Euro weakened across the board as the Consumer Price report highlighted a growing threat for deflation, and the single currency may track lower going into the European Central Bank (ECB) meeting on November 7 as the central bank continues to mull more non-standard measures to insulate the monetary union.

Indeed, there’s bets that the ECB will further embark on its easing cycle as it continues to operate under its one and only mandate to ensure price stability, and the Governing Council may even look to verbally intervene in the Euro in order to limit the downside for inflation.

As a result, the EURUSD may struggle to maintain the bullish trend from earlier this year, and the pair may a more pronounced downturn in the days ahead should ECB President Mario Draghi sound more dovish this time around.
