AUD/USD RSI Flirts with Oversold Territory- Downside Targets Favored
  • Fails to push above former support around 0.9200-10 despite the 121.0K rise in Australia Employment, with the jobless rate slipping to 6.1% from 6.3%.

  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) has narrowed, but continues to favor a bearish outlook for AUD/USD retail crowd remains net-long, with the ratio currently standing at +1.80.


AUD/USD RSI Flirts with Oversold Territory- Downside Targets Favored
  • NZD/USD looks poised to give back the rebound from February (0.8050) as it closes below the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement (82.10-20), while RSI pushes into oversold territory.
  • With the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) retaining the verbal intervention on the New Zealand dollar, will continue to use the downward trending channel for near-term guidance.

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index holds previous day’s range; may see a more meaningful run at August 2013 high (10,897) as U.S. Retail Sales expected to rise 0.6% in August, U. of Michigan Confidence projected to increase to 83.3 in September from 82.5 the month prior.
  • Will continue to favor USDOLLAR strength as long as RSI preserves the bullish trendline, but failure to close above 10,869 (78.6% retracement) may highlight a near-term topping process.
  • Looks as though retail crowd will stay net-short USD ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) interest rate decision as the DailyFX SSI retains the recent trends.
