  • String of failed attempts to push back above former support (0.9330-40) raises the risk of seeing a more meaningful move at the key 0.9200-10 support zone.
  • Bearish RSI momentum may continue to limit the topside for AUD/USD; may need a key catalyst to spur a break of near-term range.
  • May need the Fed to lay out a more detailed exit-strategy as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) continues to see a period of interest rate stability.

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index continues to eye former support from earlier this year around 10,657 (61.8% expansion) as Fed Chair Janet Yellen adopts a more neutral tone for monetary policy.
  • Keeping a close eye on the RSI as it remains capped by 78; bullish break in oscillator to favor a further USD advances.
  • However, a turn in the RSI and a break of the bullish momentum would highlight a risk for a larger correction in the greenback.
  • Interim Resistance: 10,657 (61.8% expansion) to 10,661 (23.6% retracement)
  • Interim Support: 10,555 (50.0% retracement) to 10,561 (100% expansion)
