Federal Reserve Publishes Beige Book

19:00

The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) pared the advance from earlier this week as the dismal ADP Employment report dampens the outlook for Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP), and the greenback may weaken further ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) March 19 meeting as the slowdown in job growth drags on interest rate expectations.

Indeed, we need to keep a close eye on the Relative Strength Index (RSI) as it threatens the bearish momentum from earlier this year, but a downside break in the oscillator would highlight a near-term top in the USDOLLAR as it appears to be carving a new series of lower highs paired with lower lows.

With that said, we may see interest rate expectations deteriorate further should the NFP report dampen the Fed’s scope to normalize monetary policy sooner rather than later, and the bearish sentiment surrounding the reserve currency may gather pace over the near-term should the slowdown in economic activity carry beyond the winter months.

AUDUSD Daily

  • Lacks of Momentum to Push Back Above 0.9000; Another Lower High?
  • 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)

Two of the four components strengthened against the greenback, with the British Pound and Australian dollar both gaining 0.38 percent, but the AUDUSD appears to be carving a lower-high just below the 0.9000 handle as the bearish RSI momentum remains intact.

Despite the better-than-expected 4Q GDP report, the limited market reaction suggests that the topside will stay capped as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) ramps up its verbal intervention on the higher-yielding currency, and Governor Glenn Stevens may take a more aggressive approach in talking-down the aussie in an effort to further assist with the rebalancing of the real economy.

With that said, we will stick with the RBA in looking for a lower AUDUSD exchange rate, and the pair remains at risk of seeing fresh lows over the near-term as it carves a lower high in February.
