USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Downside targets remain favorable for the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index as price & the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retain bearish momentum.
  • October low (10,354) remains the next downside objective; will look for a close below 10,375 (50.0% Fib retracement) for confirmation/conviction.
  • Focus turns to Non-Farm Payrolls (+210K), but need larger gains in job growth to spur a material shift in the Fed’s policy outlook.
  • Will retain approach to ‘sell bounces’ in the USD as long as Fed remains reluctant to move away from its easing cycle.

AUD/USD:

  • Climbs to a fresh 2014 high (0.9492); Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) retains neutral tone for monetary policy.
  • Next topside objective comes in around 0.9500 (38.2% Fib retracement) to 0.9520 (78.6% Fib retracement).
  • Will continue to favor topside targets as long as price & RSI maintain the bullish formations..

EUR/AUD

  • Breaks below near-term support (1.4430) ahead of European Central Bank (ECB) meeting.
  • Appears to have carved a series of lower-highs in June, raising risk for a lower-low in July.
  • Break below the June low (1.4358) to expose 1.4320-30, key Fibonacci confluence zone.
