The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) failed to break out of the bearish trend as the U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) fell short of market expectations, and the greenback looks poised for a move back towards the 10,500 handle as it continues to carve lower highs paired with lower lows.

In light of recent price action, it seems as though the downward trending channel will continue to take shape in April, and the dollar remains at risk giving back the advance from back in October as price & the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retain the bearish momentum from earlier this year.

With that said, we will continue to look for opportunities to ‘sell bounces’ in the reserve currency, and may see a more meaningful run at the 10,470 pivot this time around as the fundamental developments coming out of the world’s largest economy dampens expectations for seeing a stronger recovery in 2014.

Two of the four components strengthened against the greenback, led by a 0.63 percent rally in the Australian dollar, but the AUD/USD remains at risk for a larger pullback as it remains capped by former support around 0.9290-0.9300.

Indeed, we’ll continue to watch the monthly opening range for the aussie-dollar as it remains stuck in a topping process, and will wait for a break and a close below the 0.9200 to favor the downside targets as it retains the sideways price action carried over from the end of March.

In turn, the fundamental event risks coming out of the $1T and China – Australia’s largest trading partner – may clear up the short-term picture of the AUD/USD, and we may see the pair resume the downward trend from back in 2011 as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) favors the exchange rate close to the 0.8500 handle.
