The Australian dollar extends the advance from earlier this week following the better-than-expected 1Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and the aussie-dollar exchange rate may continue to track higher over the coming days as it breaks out of a bearish formation.

Keep in mind, the broader outlook for AUD/USD remains relatively flat as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) appears to be in no rush to lift the official cash rate off of the record-low, and the pair may continue to operate within the 2016-range as Governor Philip Lowe and Co. persistently endorse a wait-and-see approach for monetary policy.

  • Topside targets are back in focus for AUD/USD following the failed attempt to test the May low (0.7329), and the pair may extends the recent series of higher highs & lows as it shows a more meaningful break of channel resistance.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) highlighting a similar dynamic as it clears the bearish formation carried over from earlier this year, but will keep a close eye on the oscillator as it climbs towards overbought territory.
  • Nevertheless, AUD/USD is quickly coming up against the first topside hurdle around 0.7580 (38.2% retracement) to 0.7600 (23.6% retracement), with the next region of interest coming in around 0.7650 (50% expansion) to 0.7680 (23.6% retracement).

EUR/USD struggles to hold its ground ahead of the European Central Bank (ECB) interest rate decision amid reports the Governing Council will reduce its inflation forecast through 2019, and the single-currency stands at risk of facing a kneejerk reaction as the Governing Council appears to be on course to preserve the zero-interest rate policy (ZIRP) throughout 2017.

Indeed, the ECB is likely to reiterate ‘a very substantial degree of monetary accommodation is still needed for underlying inflation pressures to build up’ as the central bank struggles to achieve its one and only mandate for price stability, but President Mario Draghi and Co. may highlight a greater willingness to further reduce its asset-purchases over the coming months as the quantitative easing (QE) program is set to expire in December. In turn, a gradual adjustment of the policy outlook may ultimately trigger a bullish reaction in the Euro should the ECB curb speculation for additional monetary support.

  • Even though the Euro remains under pressure, EUR/USD may range-bound conditions ahead of the ECB interest rate decision as it preserves the monthly opening range, with the broader outlook tilted to the topside as price & the Relative Strength Index (RSI) preserve the bullish formations carried over from late-2016.
  • Nevertheless, failure to test the November-high (1.1299) raises the risk for a near-term correction especially as the RSI pulls away from overbought territory, with a break of the monthly low (1.1202) opening up the first downside area of interest around 1.1130 (61.8% retracement) to 1.1160 (38.2% expansion) followed by the Fibonacci overlap from 1.0980 (50% retracement) to 1.1020 (50% retracement).
