Talking Points:

- USDOLLAR Continues to Carve Lower-Highs in June

- GBP/USD Breaks Out Ahead of Bank of England (BoE) Minutes

- NZD/USD Clears Long-Term Bearish Momentum; Higher-High on Tap?

The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) is struggling to hold its ground following the slew of dismal data coming out of the world’s largest economy, and the greenback may continue to give back the rebound from May (10,370) as the reserve currency carves a series of lower-highs in June.

As a result, the dollar remains at risk of carving fresh monthly lows ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting on June 18, and the bearish sentiment surrounding the greenback may gather pace ahead of the second-half of the year as Fed Chair Janet Yellen remains in no rush to normalize monetary policy.

With that said, we are likely to get more of the same from the FOMC, and we continue to favor ‘selling bounces’ in the dollar as the bearish momentum in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) gathers pace.
