EUR/USD

EUR/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Looks as though EUR/USD will continue to close above 1.1185 (23.6% expansion) to 1.1210 (61.8% retracement), but will retain the approach to ‘sell-bounces’ in EUR/USD as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the bearish momentum.
  • Updated forecasts along with the forward-guidance for monetary policy will be largely in focus as the European Central Bank (ECB) prepares to launch its quantitative-easing (QE) program.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd has flipped back to net-short EUR/USD going into the end of the month, with the ratio currently holding at -1.02.

AUD/USD

AUD/USD Daily Chart
  • AUD/USD looks poised to retain the range-bounce action ahead of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) interest rate decision on March 3 amid the string of closes above 0.7780 (23.6% retracement).
  • Seeing mixed speculation for a further reduction in borrowing-costs as 18 of the 29 economists polled forecast a 25bp rate cut.
  • With the near-term bullish RSI momentum in play, key topside level of interest comes in around former support at 0.8020 (38.2% expansion) to 0.8040 (61.8% retracement).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar outlook remains bullish going into March as it retains the upward trending channel carried over from July 2014; topside targets favored following break of bearish RSI momentum.
  • The stronger-than-expected 4Q GDP print may fuel expectations for a very robust Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report, but we will keep a close eye on the wage growth figures especially as the Fed remains in no rush to normalize monetary policy.
  • Still favor the approach to ‘buy dips’ in USDOLLAR, with the next topside target coming in around 11,901 (78.6% expansion).
