AUD/USD

AUD/USD Holds August Opening Range Ahead of RBA, 2Q GDP
  • Preserves the opening monthly range ahead of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) interest rate decision & 2Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report.
  • Biggest risk surrounding the RBA meeting will be stronger verbal intervention from Governor Glenn Stevens amid the resilience in the Australian dollar.
  • Although the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long on AUD/USD, the ratio has narrowed as it currently sits at +1.42.

XAU/USD

AUD/USD Holds August Opening Range Ahead of RBA, 2Q GDP
  • Despite the spike into $1,296, the lack of momentum to close above former support around $1,291(38.2% retracement) to $1,292 (38.2% expansion) may highlight a near-term top as the RSI preserves the bearish momentum .
  • Still need a break and close below $1,270 (50.0% expansion) to favor a resumption of the bearish trend carried over from July.
  • Next downside objective comes in around $1,260, the 61.8% retracement of the December advance.

USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Looks as though the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index will continue to close above trendline resistance despite the bearish break on the RSI amid stick inflation.
  • Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) highlights the biggest U.S. event risk as employment is expected to increase another 220K in August while Average Hourly Earnings is expected to climb an annualized 2.1%.
  • Nevertheless, technical outlook continues to highlight the risk for a larger correction as RSI breaks bullish trend & falls back from overbought territory; former resistance around 10,555 (50.0% retracement) to 10,561 (100% expansion) remains in focus.
