The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) fell back from a fresh monthly high of 10,754 following the unexpected uptick in U.S. Continuing Jobless Claims, and the technical outlook continues to highlight the downside targets for the greenback as the bearish divergence in the Relative Strength Index continues to take shape.

In light of the spike into interim resistance, another close below 10,716 may continue to highlight a near-term top in the USDOLLAR, and the reserve currency remains poised for a larger correction as it struggles to retain the bullish trend carried over from the previous year.

With that said, another lower high in the RSI should reinforce a bearish outlook for the greenback, and we will continue to watch the downside targets as the recent batch of dismal data dampens the Fed’s scope to deliver another $10B taper at the January 29 meeting.

  • Looking for Lower Low Following Break of Interim Support; Reinforced by RSI Trigger
  • Interim Resistance: 0.8980 (38.2 expansion) to 0.9000 (1.618 expansion)
  • Interim Support: 0.8700 (78.6 expansion) to 0.8730 (50.0 expansion)

Two of the four components weakened against the greenback, led by a 1.26 percent decline in the Australian dollar, and the AUDUSD may continue to track lower over the remainder of the week as it searches for support.

Indeed, the dismal Employment report coming out of the $1T economy triggered the break of interim support, with the aussie-dollar marking a fresh yearly low of 0.8775, and the higher-yielding currency may face additional headwinds over the coming months as the slowing recovery puts increased pressure on the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) to further embark on its easing cycle.

In turn, we will for a lower low in the AUDUSD, and will maintain our bearish forecast for the pair amid the deviation in the policy outlook.
