AUD/USD Weekly Outlook

AUD/USD’s sharp decline last week confirmed short term topping at 0.8135, after being rejected by 0.8124 resistance. Initial bias remains on the downside this week for 55 day EMA (now at 0.7851). Sustained break there will argue that rise from 0.7500 has already finished and will bring deeper fall to retest this support level. On the upside, above 0.7986 minor resistance will turn intraday bias neutral first. But recovery will likely be limited below 0.8135 resistance at first attempt.

In the bigger picture, medium term rebound from 0.6826 is seen as a corrective move. It might still extend higher but we’d expect strong resistance from 38.2% retracement of 1.1079 to 0.6826 at 0.8451 to limit upside to bring long term down trend resumption. On the downside, break of 0.7500 support will now be an important signal that such corrective rebound is completed.

In the longer term picture, 0.6826 is seen as a long term bottom. Rise from there could either reverse the down trend from 1.1079, or just develop into a corrective pattern. At this point, we’re favoring the latter. And, as long as 38.2% retracement of 1.1079 to 0.6826 at 0.8451 holds, we’d anticipate another decline through 0.6826 at a later stage. But strong support should be seen between 0.4773 (2001 low) and 0.6008 (2008 low).
