The US Dollar lacked direction and traded broadly mixed on Thursday. USD price action strengthened modestly against the Pound and Yen, but weakened against the Australian Dollar and Euro. On balance, the DXY Index finished roughly flat as US Dollar bears and bulls continue to battle for direction near the 50-day simple moving average.

This has given pause to the latest stretch of US Dollar selling pressure, which corresponded with a breakdown of the relative strength index and invalidation of the short-term bullish trend formed from the 06 January and 26 January lows. Failing to maintain altitude around the 50-day simple moving average could see a resumption of US Dollar weakness that steers the DXY Index down to its bottom Bollinger Band. A last ditch effort by US Dollar bulls to rekindle recent rebound efforts could see the 91.00-price level come into play as a potential topside objective.

US Dollar overnight implied volatility readings have cooled off quite a bit. USD/JPY has one of the lowest implied volatility readings at 4.0%, which ranks in the bottom 10th percentile of readings taken over the last 12-months and is also below its 20-day average of 4.8%. This brings to focus the monthly consumer sentiment report on deck for release tomorrow, 12 February at 15:00 GMT as a potential catalyst for volatility. That said, USD/JPY price action could ‘lead the way’ so to speak in terms of where the broader US Dollar heads next.
