"We suspect that the data this week, especially the core CPI (consumer price inflation) print, as well as indications from the minutes..., will allay concerns that the Fed may delay lift-off beyond September." 
- Credit Agricole (based on CNBC) 

Pair's Outlook 
The Australian Dollar behaved according to the forecast, as the AUD/USD remained relatively unchanged on Friday. The pair experienced minor volatility and lost two pips as a result, following with a slightly larger decline over the weekend. Moreover, the Aussie is expected to extend its bearish trend, despite mixed technical indicators. The AUD is strongly supported by a cluster of levels around 0.7340, represented by the weekly pivot point and the 20-day SMA, which is likely to limit the losses today.

Traders' Sentiment 
Both net sentiment and net orders improved today. There are now 74% of long positions, while 41% (five percentage points more) of all orders are to buy the Australian currency.
