EUR/USD:

  • Looks like EUR/USD will face a larger rebound ahead of the European Central Bank (ECB) meeting as a the Relative Strength Index (RSI) bounces back from oversold territory.
  • Break of near-term bearish RSI momentum may drive the EUR/USD back towards former support around 1.3500-20.
  • Nevertheless, DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long on EUR/USD, with the ratio standing at +1.61, which continues to favor a long-term bearish outlook.

AUD/USD:

  • Will watch former support around 0.9330-40 for new resistance ahead of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) policy meeting; rates expected to stay on hold at 2.50%.
  • Bearish RSI momentum continues to favor approach to ‘sell bounces’ as the bigger range comes into play; key support stands at 0.9200-10.
  • RBA statement may have most meaningful impact on AUD/USD as Governor Glenn Stevens toughens verbal intervention on the Australian dollar.
