Focus Chart of the Day: AUD/USD

Price & Time: The AUD/USD Cold Shoulder

There was some interesting action in AUD/USD overnight as the exchange rate ignored a seemingly very positive employment report. The initial reaction to the news saw the rate rally to re-test the neckline of the multi-month head & shoulders pattern (.9220) that had been triggered earlier in the week. The pair could not make any headway over that level, however, further confirming the validity of the negative pattern. The rate has come under steady pressure since then falling by about a big figure at the time of writing. A key downside pivot going forward looks to be the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high near .9120 as a close below this level should set off a deeper decline into next week. The latter part of next week looks quite important from a cyclical perspective as key relationship with the 2011 high should influence the rate around this time. New lows into this period will have me looking for a reversal, but with sentiment far from extended in the Aussie I will need to see some pretty clear positive price action before looking to fade this burgeoning downtrend. Key downside attractions and potential reaction areas after .9120 look to be .9060/75 and .8965/75.
