The near-term decline in the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) could be the start of a longer-term bearish trend as the greenback struggles to find support.

Indeed, the lack of momentum to hold above the December low (10,565) negates the bullish bias for the USD, and the dollar may continue to give back the rebound from back in October should it fail to preserve the upward trend dating back to September 2012.

With that said, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Minutes due out next week may help to limit the downside risks for the greenback as the central bank remains poised to discuss another $10B taper at the March 19 meeting, but we may revert back to ‘selling bounces’ in the reserve currency as the bearish momentum in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) continues to take shape.

  • RSI to Provide Confirmation/Conviction- Remains at Risk for Downside Break
  • Interim Resistance: 0.9050 (23.6% expansion) to 0.9070 (38.2% retracement)
  • Interim Support: 0.8670 (100.0% expansion) to 0.8700 (78.6% expansion)

The greenback weakened against all four components, led by a 0.48 percent rally in the Australian dollar, but the AUDUSD remains at risk of carving a lower high as is fails to break and close above resistance.

Indeed, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Minutes may limit the downside for the higher-yielding currency as Governor Glenn Stevens adopts a more neutral tone for monetary policy, but the central bank may have little choice but to further embark on its easing cycle amid the rise in unemployment.

With that said, we will continue to watch the RSI for confirmation as well as conviction as the bullish momentum appears to be coming to an end, and the AUDUSD should resume the long-term bearish trend as the fundamental outlook for the $1T economy remains tilted to the downside.
