GBP/USD Daily Chart
  • GBP/USD looks poised for a more meaningful rebound as it threatens trendline resistance; bullish breakout in Relative Strength Index (RSI) continues to favor topside targets, with the next level of interest coming in around the 1.6250 pivot to 1.6290 (61.8% expansion).
  • Bank of England (BoE) Minutes may continue to drag on interest rate expectations should they show another 7-2 split, while the 3Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report may warn of a slowing recovery.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows the retail-crowd remains net-long on GBP/USD since the beginning of the month as the ratio currently stands at +1.15.


AUD/USD Daily Chart
  • AUD/USD may break out of the wedge/triangle formation & resume the downward trend on dovish Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Minutes along with a marked slowdown in China’s 3Q GDP print.
  • Looks as though Governor Glenn Stevens will continue to implement the verbal intervention on the Australian dollar as the headline reading for inflation is expected to slow to an annualized 2.3% from 3.0% in the second-quarter..
  • Keeping a close eye on the RSI for conviction/confirmation; next downside target comes in around the 0.8600 pivot to 0.8610 (38.2% expansion).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index remains vulnerable to a larger correction as the bearish RSI momentum continues to take shape.
  • With the headline reading for U.S. inflation to slow further in September, subdued price growth may drag on interest rate expectations as the majority of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) remains in no rush to normalize monetary policy.
  • As the downward trending channel remains in play, 10,869 (78.6% retracement) to 10,887 (61.8% retracement) remains the next downside region of interest.
