AUD/USD in Correction- 7590 Key Resistance

AUD/USD in Correction- 7590 Key Resistance

Michael Boutros, Strategist

Talking Points

  • AUDUSD reverses off key resistance- Broader bias remains constructive
  • Immediate focus is lower- drop to offer favorable entries
  • Updated targets & invalidation levels


AUD/USD in Correction- 7590 Key Resistance

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook: AUDUSD is correcting off key confluence resistance tested last week at 7644/52. This region is defined by the 1.618% extension of the advance off the 2016 low, the 61.8% retracement of the May decline and a sliding parallel of the operative slope extending off the October high. The pair came into near-term confluence support in Asia last night at 7478/81 and although we’re likely to see some recovery off this mark, we’ll be looking for another low heading into next week to offer more favorable long entries on a resumption of the broader uptrend.

Resistance & bearish invalidation stands at the April low-day close at 7590 with a break of the lows targeting the August high at 7438- note that this level converges on the 50-line heading into next week and we’ll be on the lookout for long-triggers into this region.

Avoid the pitfalls of near-term trading strategies by steering clear of classic mistakes. Review these principles in the "Traits of SuccessfulTraders” series.

USDCAD 30min

AUD/USD in Correction- 7590 Key Resistance

Notes: Momentum divergence into confluence support shifted the immediate bias higher targeting the median-line of the embeded pitchfork which converges on the 38.2% retracement of this week’s range at 7542. A breach above this region keeps the immediate topside bias in play targeting the upper median-line parallel / bullish invalidation at 7583/90. A break lower tatgerts 7438 – a level if broke would suggest a much more significant correction lower is underway.

A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 24-26 pips per scalp. Event risk is limited ahead of the weekend with U.S. Personal Consumption Expenditure, Consumer Confidence & the highly anticipated Non-Farm Payroll reports on tap next week. Added caution is warranted heading into the close month / quarter as we’re likely to see some added intraday volatility.
