Aussie Price Chart – AUD/USD 120min

Aussie Price Chart - Australian Dollar vs US Dollar 120min - AUDUSD Technical Outlook

Notes: In my last Aussie Weekly Price Outlook we noted that a downside break below slope support / 6900, “would once again keep the 2016 low / low-week close into focus at 6827/55- look for a more significant reaction there IF reached.” Price registered a low at 6832 last week before rebounding sharply with the rally trading within the confines of this near-term ascending channel formation.

The advance is now testing the January 3rd yearly low-day close at 7005. Note that the June opening-range high & the 2019 open stand just higher at 7022 and 7042 – we’re looking for near-term exhaustion off one of these levels. Interim support rests with the lower parallel – a downside break would expose subsequent objectives at the 61.8% retracement at 6950 and the June / weekly open at 6926/30 – losses should not surpass this support zone IF Aussie is indeed heading higher.

Bottom line: The Aussie breakout is approaching a series of major resistance targets at 7005/42 and the leave the immediate long-bias vulnerable heading into the close of June trade. From a trading standpoint, a good zone to reduce long-exposure / raise protective stops. Be on the lookout for topside exhaustion on push into the monthly highs for the pullback. Ultimately, we’ll favor fading weakness while above the Monthly open targeting a test / breach of yearly open resistance. Keep in mind we have the RBA (Reserve Bank of Australia) interest rate decision and US NFPs (Non-Farm Payrolls) on tap into the first week of July trade.

Aussie Trader Sentiment (AUD/USD)

Aussie Trader Sentiment - AUD/USD Positioning - Austrlian Dollar vs US Dollar Price Chart
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-long AUD/USD - the ratio stands at +1.21 (54.7% of traders are long) – weak bearish reading
  • Traders have remained net-long since April 18th; price has moved 1.7% lower since then
  • The percentage of traders net-long is now its lowest since April 12
  • Long positions are 3.5% lower than yesterday and 21.5% lower from last week
  • Short positions are 22.0% higher than yesterday and 79.4% higher from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Aussie prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday & compared with last week and the recent changes in sentiment warn that the current AUD/USD price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
