The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) may continue to consolidate ahead of the highly anticipated Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report as price stubbornly holds above the 10,500 region.

Indeed, expectations for a 200K rise in U.S. employment may keep the dollar afloat over the near-term, but the greenback remains at risk of carving lower highs & lower lows as long as price and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retain the downward trend from earlier this year.

With that said, we’ll continue to watch the monthly opening range as the greenback comes up against trendline support, but the USDOLLAR may ultimately make a more meaningful run at the 10,470 region should the NFP report give the Federal Reserve greater scope to retain its zero-interest rate policy (ZIRP) for an extended period of time.

The greenback continued to strengthened against three of the four components, driven by a 0.20 percent decline in the Euro, and the single currency may face a further decline over the next 24-hours of trading should the European Central Bank (ECB) highlight a more dovish tone for monetary policy.

After failing to close above the 1.3800 handle, the EURUSD remains at risk of seeing a decline into 1.3715-20 as the near-term correction remains in play, and the ECB interest rate decision may set the tone for the remainder of the month as market participants weigh the outlook for monetary policy.

In turn, the press conference with ECB President Mario Draghi may turn out to be the main event as the central bank is widely expected to keep the benchmark interest rate on hold, and we would need to see the EURUSD break below the 1.3500 handle to adopt a bearish outlook for the pair.
