Last night, US markets observed Labor Day celebrations, resulting in a subdued environment across asset classes, marked by sideways trading. Conversely, China’s equity market experienced a morning session decline. The catalyst was a Caixin Services PMI reading that not only fell short of market consensus but also trailed the previous figure, underscoring persistent challenges in China’s ongoing economic recovery. Elsewhere, all eyes are on the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), set to announce its interest rate decision today. It’s widely anticipated that the central bank will maintain its current interest rate level, which could further pressure the already fragile Australian dollar. Meanwhile, oil prices have remained stable at their highest levels since last November, with market participants eagerly awaiting the next moves from OPEC+ regarding supply dynamics.

Dollar-denominated assets experienced subdued trading on the back of the recent US holiday. The US dollar, navigating thin volumes, retreated slightly, influenced by a global risk-on sentiment. This shift followed China’s unveiling of a stimulus plan aimed at reinvigorating economic growth, while the outlook for the US economy remained shrouded in uncertainty due to mixed economic data.
The dollar index extended its gains following the prior breakout above the previous resistance level. However, MACD has illustrated diminishing bullish momentum, while RSI is at 62, suggesting the index might be traded lower as technical correction since the RSI retreated from the overbought territory.
Resistance level: 104.50, 105.15
Support level: 103.60, 102.80

The euro exhibited limited price movement against the USD during the U.S. Labor Day celebrations. Despite a speech by ECB Chair Christine Lagarde in London touching on inflation concerns, the pair’s volatility remained subdued. Investors are now focusing on the upcoming release of Eurozone GDP data on Thursday, which could provide insights into the Euro’s future strength.
The EUR/USD is struggling and on the brink of falling below its crucial support level at 1.0780. The RSI has been hovering near the oversold zone while the MACD is flowing flat below the zero line, suggesting the momentum for the pair is minimal.
Resistance level: 1.0850, 1.0920
Support level: 1.0760, 1.0700
The Australian dollar broke out of its recent price consolidation range, driven by disappointing economic news out of China. China’s Caixin Services PMI came in at 51.8, lower than the previous reading of 54.1, indicating ongoing challenges in the country’s economic recovery. This data has added downward pressure on the already fragile Aussie dollar. Additionally, with the RBA expected to announce its interest rate decision today, and the market widely anticipating the central bank to maintain the current interest rate, it’s expected that the Aussie dollar will face further resistance in rebounding from its current levels.
The pair failed to hold above its close support level at 0.6440 suggesting a bearish signal for the pair. The indicators echo the suggestion as the RSI moving downward while the MACD is breaking below the zero line.
Resistance level: 0.6500, 0.6580
Support level: 0.6380, 0.6330
The Japanese yen extended its underperformance, driven by the Bank of Japan’s (BoJ) adoption of a more dovish stance.

Moreover, prospects of currency intervention by the BoJ remained bleak, exacerbating the downward pressure on the Japanese yen.

Chinese equities experienced an upswing, with the Hang Seng Index surging by over 2%.

HK50 is trading higher following the prior breakout above the resistance level. However, MACD has illustrated diminishing bullish momentum, while RSI is at 60, suggesting the index might be traded lower as technical correction since the RSI retreated sharply from overbought territory.

Support level: 18630.00, 18235.00
