AUD/USD:

  • Fails to clear former support around 0.9330-40 ahead of Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Minutes & Governor Glenn Stevens’ semi-annual testimony.
  • With the recent series of lower-highs, the bearish momentum in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) favors downside targets.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long on AUD/USD as the ratio currently stands at +1.31.

USD/CAD:

  • USD/CAD slips to a fresh weekly low of 1.0859 as Canada Employment climbs 41.7K in July with the jobless rate unexpectedly slipping to 7.0% from 7.1% the month prior.
  • Even though the bearish RSI momentum remains in focus, we’re sitting at trendline support along with a clutter of key Fibonacci levels around 1.0850-70; higher-low in place?
  • Bank of Canada (BoC) policy outlook may continue to dampen the appeal of the Canadian dollar as Governor Stephen Poloz remains reluctant to further normalize monetary policy.
