Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; AUD/USD on Tradingview

Technical Outlook: In my most recent Australian Dollar Price Outlook our bottom line noted that Aussie had turned off slope support, favoring, “fading weakness while above this threshold targeting 6827/55.” Price rallied into this level on Friday with AUD/USD testing longer-term slope resistance early in the week. Initial daily support rests at 6827 backed by the 68-handle- broader bullish invalidation now raised to the monthly low-day close at 6760. A topside breach from here exposes subsequent resistance objectives at 6910 and the 61.8% retracement at 6927.

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; AUD/USD on Tradingview

Notes: A closer look at Aussie price action shows AUD/USD trading within the confines of an ascending pitchfork formation extending off the late-August / September lows with price trading just above the median-line mid-day in New York. Looking for initial support at 6827/32 backed by 6803 – both levels of interest for possible downside exhaustion / long-entries IF reached. Weakness, on a close basis, beyond the figure would invalidate the current structure. Initial resistance now at the 50% retracement at 6880 with a breach there exposing topside targets at 6911 and 6924/27.Keep an eye on the weekly opening-range which has taken shape just above support – look for the break here for guidance.

For a complete breakdown of Michael’s trading strategy, review his Foundations of Technical Analysis series on Building a Trading Strategy

Bottom line: The Australian Dollar reversal is at risk here near-term. From a trading standpoint, a good spot to reduce long-exposure / raise protective stops - look for an exhaustion low / support ahead of the lower parallels with our focus higher while within this formation.

  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-long AUD/USD - the ratio stands at +1.35 (57.5% of traders are long) – weak bearish reading

  • Long positions are 4.6% lower than yesterday and 22.3% lower from last week
  • Short positions are7.9% higher than yesterday and 34.6% higher from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests AUD/USD prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current AUD/USD price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
