Australian Dollar Price Chart – AUD/USD Weekly

Australian Dollar Price Chart - AUD/USD Weekly - Aussie Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast

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

Notes: In my last Australian Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we noted that, “Aussie has been in a price range since the August lows with the recent recovery now eyeing confluence resistance at the upper bounds.AUD/USD has continued to hold just below channel resistance with the FOMC interest rate decision on tap later today and NFPs slated for Friday.

Key resistance remains at the 2016 low-week close / September highs at 6855/95- a breach / close above this threshold is needed to validate the breakout targeting the 61.8% retracement of the July decline at 6927 and the March low at 7003. Weekly support rests with the low-week close at 6768- weakness beyond this threshold would mark resumption of the broader downtrend targeting the yearly lows at 6677.

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

Bottom line: AUD/USD is testing yearly downtrend resistance here and leaves the immediate Aussie advance vulnerable sub-6895. From a trading standpoint, a good spot to reduce long-exposure / raise protective stops. Look for a reaction at this zone today for guidance – IF price fails, look for a play off 6768. Review my latest Australian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the near-term AUD/USD technical trading levels.

Australian Dollar Trader Sentiment – AUD/USD Price Chart

Australian Dollar Trader Senitment - AUD/USD Price Chart - Aussie Trade Oulook - Techncial Forecast
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-long AUD/USD - the ratio stands at +1.13 (53.15% of traders are long) – neutral reading
  • Long positions are 6.23% lower than yesterday and 7.22% higher from last week
  • Short positions are4.15% higher than yesterday and 10.59% lower 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. Traders are less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week and the combination of current positioning and recent changes gives us a further mixed AUD/USD trading bias from sentiment standpoint.
