Talking Points:

- USDOLLAR Needs Less-Dovish FOMC to Breakout of Bearish Formation

- GBP/AUD Breaks Out; Need Close Above Interim Resistance (1.8130-40)

- EUR/NZD at Risk of Carving Lower-High as New Zealand 1Q GDP Picks Up

The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) rallied to a fresh weekly high (10,480) as the headline reading for U.S. inflation exceeded market expectations, but the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting may drag on the greenback should the central bank continue to cast a dovish outlook for monetary policy.

In light of the larger-than-expected contraction in 1Q GDP, the updated forecasts (growth, inflation & interest rate) may reflected a greater willingness to maintain the highly accommodative policy stance for an extended period of time, and the dollar may face additional headwinds throughout the summer months as Chair Janet Yellen remains in no rush to normalize monetary policy.

With that said, we will continue to look for lower-highs & lower-lows as long as the bearish RSI momentum remains intact, and will favor ‘selling bounces’ in the greenback should we get more of the same from the FOMC.
