AUD/USD:

  • The bearish trend in price & the Relative Strength Index (RSI) favors downside targets; 0.9200 handle remains key support.
  • Need to closely watch interest rate expectations as Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) lowers growth, inflation forecast.
  • Nevertheless, DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long on AUD/USD in August, with the ratio standing at +1.79.

USD/CAD:

  • Risks larger correction as USD/CAD appears to be carving near-term top ahead of 1.1000; waiting for a bearish RSI break to materialize for confirmation & conviction.
  • Will look for longer-term opportunities to ‘buy dips’ in USD/CAD as pair retains bullish trend from 2013; Bank of Canada (BoC) to preserve relatively dovish tone for monetary policy.
  • Seems as though BoC Governor Stephen Poloz is in no rush to normalize; does not want to get too ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC).
