EUR/AUD Weekly Outlook

EUR/AUD edged higher to 1.5976 last week but reversed from there. A short term top is at least formed on bearish divergence condition in 4 hour MACD. Initial bias remains on the downside this week for a 1.5626 support. Based on current momentum, break of 1.5626 will pave the way to 61.8% retracement of 1.5153 to 1.5976 at 1.5467 and below. On the upside above 1.5787 minor resistance will turn intraday bias neutral first. But risk will for now stay on the downside as long as 1.5976 resistance holds.

In the bigger picture, change of medium term reversal is increasing with EUR/AUD just missing double projection target. They are 61.8% projection of 1.4421 to 1.5770 from 1.5153 at 1.5987, and 100% projection of 1.3624 to 1.5226 from 1.4421at 1.6023. Also, bearish divergence condition remains in daily MACD. Break of 1.5626 support will add to this bearish case and target 1.5153 key support for confirmation. Nonetheless, before that happens, as long as 1.5153 support holds, medium term rise from 1.3624 could still extend to retest 1.6587 high.

In the longer term picture, the rise from 1.1602 long term bottom (2012 low) isn’t over yet. We’ll keep monitoring the development but there is prospect of extending the rise to 61.8% retracement of 2.1127 to 1.1602 at 1.7488 and above. However, sustained trading below 1.3671 should indicate long term reversal and target 1.1602 long term bottom again.
