US Dollar sinks towards 94.30

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The selling interest is now accelerating around the greenback on Wednesday, dragging the US Dollar Index to session lows in the 94.30 area.

US Dollar much weaker on US data

Poor results from US Retail Sales during September has exacerbated the offered tone in the US dollar, collaborating at the same time with the dovish tone seen in several Fed members and casting a mantle of doubts over the likeliness of Fed’s lift-off in December.

Ahead in the day, the Fed’s Beige Book will be in the limelight although its ability to drive the sentiment around USD is highly unlikely.

US Dollar significant levels

As of writing the US Dollar Index is losing 0.55% at 94.28 facing the next support at 94.06 (low Sep.24) followed by 92.59 (low post-PBoC move Aug.24) and finally 90.00 (psychological level). On the upside, a break above 95.46 (Fibo 50% of 98.40-92.52) would open the door to 96.05 (200-day sma) and then 96.34 (downtrend from August tops).

USD/JPY at ten-day low, 2-yr yield weakens

The USD was offered across the board after dismal US retail sales data, pushing the USD/JPY pair to a ten-day low of 119.27 and the 2-year treasury yield lower to 0.577%.
