Another Test Of Resistance At 0.7635

AUD/USD is currently trying to get back above the resistance at 0.7635 while the U.S. dollar is losing ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index declined below the support at the 20 EMA at 92.35 but failed to develop additional downside momentum. If the U.S. Dollar Index manages to settle back above the 20 EMA, it will head towards the resistance at 92.50 which will be bearish for AUD/USD.

Today, foreign exchange market traders will focus on employment reports from the U.S. Analysts expect that Initial Jobless Claims report will indicate that 680,000 Americans filed for unemployment benefits in a week. Continuing Jobless Claims are projected to decline from 3.79 million to 3.65 million.

It should be noted that Treasury yields continue to move lower which is bearish for the U.S. dollar. The yield of 10-year Treasuries is currently located at 1.65%, while the nearest significant support level is located at the 20 EMA at 1.64%. A move below the 20 EMA will signal that yields are ready to continue their pullback, which may put more pressure on the American currency.
