The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) looks poised for a higher high in February as price and the RSI retains the bullish trend carried over from the previous year.

Indeed, the Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report highlights the biggest event for the week ahead as the U.S. economy is expected to add another 185K jobs in January, but we will also need to keep a close eye on the dismal December print as Fed officials anticipate an upward revision from the initial 74K clip.

Nevertheless, the technical outlook favors ‘buying dips’ in the USD as we have a near-term base around the 10,657 region (61.8 percent Fibonacci expansion), and we will eye the topside targets going into the month ahead as the bullish sentiment surrounding the greenback gathers pace.

  • 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)

The greenback strengthened against three of the four components, led by a 0.89 percent decline in the Australian dollar, and the AUDUSD may test fresh lows next week should the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) adopt a more dovish tone for monetary policy.

There’s growing speculation that the RBA will move away from its easing cycle amid the growing threat of an asset-bubble, but Governor Glenn Stevens may sounds more cautious this time around amid the growing concerns surrounding China – Australia’s largest trading partner.

With that said, the AUDUSD may target lows as it carves a series of lower highs in January, and the higher-yielding currency may face additional headwinds from the shift in market sentiment as global investors scale back their appetite for risk.
