EUR/USD

EUR/USD Downside Targets in Focus- Gold Eyes Key $1,179 Support
  • EUR/USD marks fresh monthly low of 1.2569 as Euro-Zone Consumer Price Index (CPI) narrows to 0.3%, while core inflation unexpectedly slips to 0.7% from 0.9%.
  • Downside objectives remain favored ahead of the European Central Bank (ECB) policy meeting as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains bearish momentum & pushes deeper into oversold territory.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows a 5.1% decline in open interest, but the ratio continues to favor a contrarian view as the ratio current sits at +1.38.

XAU/USD

EUR/USD Downside Targets in Focus- Gold Eyes Key $1,179 Support
  • Gold looks poised for a further decline as USD strength persists; failure to close back above $1,224 (78.6% retracement) raises risk for a run at $1,179.
  • Waiting for RSI to push back into oversold territory along with a break & close below $1,203 (1.618% expansion) for confirmation/conviction for another leg lower.
  • Looks as though Gold will continue to trade more as a commodity rather than a currency as the Federal Reserve moves away from its easing cycle & boosts interest rate expectations.

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index coming off of a fresh monthly high (11,076) amid mixed batch of data along with profit-taking at month, quarter-end.
  • Looks as though the USDOLLAR strength will get carried into October as the RSI remains the bullish momentum; would like to see a push higher into overbought territory to favor fresh highs.
  • Will keep a close eye on the ISM Manufacturing survey’s employment component as U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls are projected to increase 217K in September; next topside targets are around 11,120 (1.618% expansion) to 11,138 (61.8% expansion).
