EUR/USD at Risk for Breakout as RSI Fails to Retain Bearish Trend

- USDOLLAR Outlook to Turn Increasingly Bearish on Close Below 10,440

- EUR/USD Close Above 1.3850 Highlights Bullish Breakout; All Eyes on ECB

- EUR/NZD Bear Flag Favors Downside Targets; RSI Fails to Preserve Bullish Trend

The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) is struggling to maintain the advance to 10,451 despite the positive data coming out of the world’s largest economy, and the greenback may continue to consolidate ahead of the highly anticipated Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report as market participants weigh the outlook for monetary policy.

Even though NFPs are projected to increase another 215K in April, there was little to suggests that there will be a material shift in the Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) policy outlook as the board retains the dovish twist to its forward-guidance, and it seems as though the we will continue to see more of the same from the Fed as Chair Janet Yellen remains reluctant to move away from the zero-interest rate policy.

With that said, the USDOLLAR may continue to carve a series of lower highs & lower lows in May, and we will still look for opportunities to ‘sell bounces’ as the greenback looks poised to give back the advance from back in October (10,354).
