DJ-FXCM Dollar Index






Despite the bullish reaction to the better-than-expected U.S. Durable Goods report, the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) is struggling to maintain the advance to 10,491, and the greenback remains at risk of carving a lower high ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) interest rate decision as the central bank is widely expected to retain its current approach in managing monetary policy.

USD/JPY Risks Further Losses as Japan Inflation Approaches BoJ Target

Even if the Fed delivers another $10B taper at the April 30 meeting, there’s a limited risk of seeing a material shift in the policy outlook as Chair Janet Yellen remains reluctant to move away from the zero-interest rate policy, and the dollar may struggle to hold its ground should the central bank merely reiterate the policy statement from the March 19 rate decision.

With that said, failure to mark another close above the 10,470 pivot may highlight a lower high in the USDOLLAR, and we will preserve our game plan to ‘sell bounces’ in the greenback until we see a clear shift in the Fed’s policy stance.
