The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) may face a larger decline over the near-term as it threatens the bullish trend carried over from the previous year.

Indeed, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) interest rate decision may dictate price action for February as market participants see the central bank reducing its asset-purchase program by another $10B, but a shift in the forward-guidance may drag on the greenback should we see a growing number of Fed officials favor a less-aggressive approach in normalizing monetary policy.

With that said, the initial reaction to the rate decision may not be clear cut as market participants gauge the prospects for future policy, and a material shift in central bank rhetoric may undermine the bullish sentiment surrounding the dollar if the FOMC implements a dovish twist to its forward-guidance.

  • Bearish RSI Momentum Remains Intact; Carving Another Lower High?
  • Interim Resistance: 0.8980 (38.2 expansion) to 0.9000 (1.618 expansion)
  • Interim Support: 0.8670 (100.0 expansion) to 0.8700 (78.6 expansion)

Once again, two of the four components rallied against the greenback, driven by a 0.46 percent advance in the Australian dollar, but the AUDUSD appears to be carving another lower high as the bearish momentum in the Relative Strength Index continues to take shape.

Beyond the Fed meeting, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) interest rate decision on February 3 may drive the AUDUSD lower as the slowdown in the Asia-Pacific region dampens the outlook for growth and inflation, and Governor Glenn Stevens may show a greater willingness to further embark on the easing cycle in order to further insulate the $1T economy.

In turn, we will maintain our game plan to ‘sell bounces’ in the AUDUSD, and the higher-yielding currency may face additional headwinds in the days ahead as market sentiment falters.
