EUR/USD Downside Targets in Focus- AUD/USD Eyes Key Fib Retracement
  • EUR/USD dips to a fresh monthly low of 1.2820 as European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi sees further expansion in balance sheet and remains prepared to take more action as needed.
  • Bearish outlook remains favored as Governing Council plans to provide a more detailed asset-backed securities (ABS) purchase plan at the October 2 meeting; next key region of interest comes in around 1.2710 (78.6% expansion) to 1.2725 (23.6% retracement).
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) continues to favor a further decline in the EUR/USD as there appears to be a further buildup of the net-long position, with the ratio currently standing at +1.53.


EUR/USD Downside Targets in Focus- AUD/USD Eyes Key Fib Retracement
  • Downside targets remain favored for AUD/USD as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains bearish momentum & dips back into oversold territory.
  • Next key downside objective is 88.30-40, 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the 2014 range- break & close below raises risk of seeing a full retracement of the rebound from January (0.8659).
  • China’s HSBC Purchasing Manager Index (PMI) may heighten the bearish sentiment surrounding the Australian dollar should the data print dampen the outlook for global trade.
