AUD/USD TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: BEARISH

  • Aussie Dollar downtrend intact amid choppy, consolidative trade
  • Monthly chart suggests scope for meaningful weakness due ahead
  • Short term chart warns bearish resumption requires confirmation

The Australian Dollar still seems to be biased lower against its US counterpart even as prices oscillate in a choppy consolidation range after finding support near the 0.67 figure. The pair still looks to be well-anchored below resistance guiding it lower since early December 2018, with a daily close above its upper boundary – now at 0.6963 – seemingly needed to neutralize the near-term bearish bias.

Zooming out to the monthly chart paints an even more ominous picture. Prices have breached an 18-year rising trend line as well as the support shelf created by the preceding swing bottom in the 0.6900-0.7018 area. The next layer of meaningful support does not emerge until the 0.6009-0.6352 region. That appears to imply that sellers have a further 6-11 percent of downside progress in scope for the months ahead.

Still, near-term positioning warns that betting on imminent bearish resumption might be premature. The immediate trajectory set from October lows remains defined by a series of higher highs and lows, suggesting AUD/USD may yet correct further before the structural decline is re-engaged. A break below counter-trend support (now at 0.6736) is probably a prerequisite for another lasting leg lower.
