Technical Outlook

  • Shorts at risk into this region- bullish invalidation

  • Interim resistance 8195- converges on upper MLP early next week

AUD/USD 30min

AUD/USD Exhaustion Trade- Shorts at Risk Above 8064

Notes:The aussie sell-off has come into a key region of support with the range extending from 8067 into 8120. Shorts are at risk here and we’ll look for reversal signals heading into next week. The pair has been holding within the confines of a descending Andrew’s Pitchfork formation off the November highs with a breach above the upper median-line parallel is needed to confirm a near-term rebound.

Bottom line: Looking for an exhaustion low in this region over the next week with a breach above this formation shifting our near-term bias higher in the aussie. Ultimately we would be looking to sell this rally with the medium-term outlook remaining weighted to the short-side.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
