AUD/USD stayed in consolidation last week and outlook is unchanged. Whole corrective pattern from 0.8006 might have completed at 0.7105 already. Further rise is in favor as long as 0.7279 minor support holds. Above 0.7477 will target 0.7530 support turned resistance first. However, break of 0.7279 will dampen our bullish view and turn bias back to the downside for 0.7105 low instead.
In the bigger picture, with 0.6991 cluster support (38.2% retracement of 0.5506 to 0.8006 at 0.7051) intact, we’re seeing price action form 0.8006 as a correction only. That is, up trend from 0.5506 low would resume after the correction completes. In that case, main focus will be 0.8135 key resistance (2018 high). Sustained break there will carry larger bullish implications. However, sustained break of 0.6991 will argue that the whole medium term trend has indeed reversed.
In the longer term picture, focus remains is back on 0.8135 structural resistance. Decisive break there will argue that rise from 0.5506 is developing into a long term up trend that reverses whole down trend from 1.1079 (2011 high). In that case, further rally would be seen to 61.8% retracement of 1.1079 to 0.5506 at 0.8950 and possibly above.
