The US Dollar advanced broadly on Monday as bulls continue to drive the rebound. US Dollar strength was notable across EUR/USD and USD/CAD in particular during the session. The DXY Index now trades at its highest level in eight-weeks following the latest 0.5% gain. Not to mention, the ongoing rebound has pushed the broader US Dollar back above its 50-day simple moving average for the first time since early November.

This leaves the DXY Index flirting with technical resistance posed by the 91.10-price level, which is emphasized by 09 December close. The upper Bollinger Band also seems to be keeping advances relatively contained, but its expanding width is noteworthy and may facilitate more upside potential.

Follow-through higher could see the 100-day simple moving average come into focus. That said, the US Dollar could face headwinds stemming from a retracement lower in the VIX ‘fear-gauge.’ This is seeing that a falling VIX Index typically corresponds with a mechanical downshift in demand for safe-haven currencies.

AUD/USD price action is anticipated to be the most active during Tuesday’s trading session. This is judging by AUD/USD overnight implied volatility of 14.3%, which is the highest reading across G10-FX. AUD/USD implied volatility is likely elevated owing to event risk on deck surrounding the Reserve Bank of Australia.

The February 2021 RBA rate decision is due for release Tuesday, 02 February at 03:30 GMT. AUD/USD could trade on its front foot in the wake of the RBA decision if the central bank leaves monetary policy unchanged as widely expected. This is considering interest rate futures traders have priced in a near 30% probability that the RBA cuts rates heading into the event.
