AUD/USD

AUD/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Despite the stickiness in China’s Consumer Price Index (CPI), AUD/USD remains at risk for a further decline as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) fails to retain the bullish momentum from the previous month.
  • A dip below 30 in the RSI may open up the downside targets, with a break below/close 0.7570 (50% expansion) to 0.7590 (100% expansion) exposing the 0.7500 handle (61.8% expansion).
  • Despite the fresh monthly lows in AUD/USD, the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd has turned net-long on March 9, with the ratio currently standing at +1.03.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart
  • Close above 1.2630 will reinforce the approach to ‘buy dips’ in USD/CAD as it breaks out of the triangle/wedge formation, while the RSI clears the bearish momentum.
  • Canada’s Employment report remains the key event risk for the loonie as the economy is expected to shed 5.0K jobs in February, while the jobless rate is projected to increase to 6.7% from 6.6% during the same period.
  • Next key topside objective comes in around 1.2797 (January high) to 1.2800 (38.2% expansion).
