  • AUD/USD may continue to give back the rebound from earlier this month (0.7532) should the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Minutes fuel speculation for a rate cut at the May 5 meeting as Governor Glenn Stevens keeps the door open to further reduce the cash rate; need a close below 0.7570 (50% expansion) to 0.7590 (100% expansion) along with a break of the bullish RSI momentum to favor a resumption of the long-term bearish trend.
  • Beyond expectations for a slowdown in Australia’s 1Q Consumer Price Index (CPI), the core rate of inflation may limit the downside risk for the aussie as its expected to hold steady at an annualized 2.2% during the first three-months of 2015.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows the retail crowd remains net-short AUD/USD since April 15, with the ratio holding at -1.03.

  • EUR/USD may face a relief rebound as European policy makers work to stem the risk for a Greek default/exit; positive developments out of the euro-area may spur another move at 1.0865 (38.2% retracement)
  • Nevertheless, long-term outlook remains bearish as the European Central Bank (ECB) looks to stick to its current course for monetary policy, while the RSI retains the long-term bearish momentum.
  • Lack of momentum to close above 1.0970 (38.2% expansion) to 1.0990 (50% retracement) may highlight a near-term topping process in EUR/USD.
