AUDUSD Bounces from a Major Median Line Parallel

-BIG picture, monthly RSI has broken out of a triangle pattern. Sometimes, a pattern breakout in momentum (or OBV) precedes the breakout in price. The development’s implications are obviously significant.

-“Near term, price action since the October low likely composes a 4th wave correction within a 5 wave decline from the May high. Allow for additional sideways trading in order to complete wave 4 before a new low in wave 5 targets 1.2400 or 1.2315.”

-“EURUSD is at a new low and focus shifts to identifying possible reversal points for the end of wave 5. Wave 5 (from 1.2886) would equal wave (1.3993-1.3502) at 1.2395. Equality between waves 5 and 1 is a common relationship.” The low this week was 1.2357, which is within the 1.2315/95 zone. Reversal risk is high.

-“GBPUSD is at a crossroads. The trend is down against 1.6184 but recent activity warns of a turn. The rate carved a key reversal last week and action since the low is constructive (decline from 1.6184 found low at the 61.8% of prior rally). Exceeding 1.6184 would confirm a 3 week bottoming pattern and yield an objective near 1.65.”

-“The rate traded 1.6181 this week before sinking to new lows. Favor the downside as long as price is below trendline resistance. The next major support is 1.5720/50.”

-“The combination of the .9400 figure and weekly RSI failing near 60 indicates a lot of overhead to punch through. Since the 2011 top, each RSI failure near 60 has led to a top or topping process (range for several weeks then a breakdown...that may be the case now).”

-“Weakness has extended below the line that extends off of the 2008 and 2014 lows, warning of something much more significant on the downside. The 10/29 outside day reversal keeps me looking lower. A new low would expose expansion objectives at .8476 and .8373.”

-AUDUSD made fresh lows this week but Friday’s outside day reversal, at a long term median line parallel nonetheless, should not be ignored. A push above .8760 (weekly breakout bar) would lend credence to a more important reversal scenario.

-“Don’t forget about the line that extends off of the 1996 and 2007 highs. That line crosses through the 2008, 2011, and highs as well. In 2011 (record free float high), the rate surged through the line in late July before topping on August 1st. The rate reversed this week from pips below the record high and above the mentioned line.”

-“The gap from Labor Day 2013 has held as support but last week’s spike into .8034 (just shy of the February low at .8050) probably completed 3 weeks of consolidation. In other words, start looking lower again. Ultimately, weakness below .7370 would confirm a double top with an objective of .5898.”

-The Bird traded under the 2013 low this week but be aware of slowing momentum (RSI divergence + RSI > 30 on the daily) and a possible ending diagonal from the 10/21 high. A daily close above .79 would indicate a reversal opportunity.

USD/JPY

-“Today’s USDJPY move is the 3rd largest one day rally since the 2011 low (all 3 moves are BoJ moves). In fact, the all-time low was exactly 3 years ago today. Where to now? The biggest (and most obvious) level that sticks out is 115.00/50 (range expansion level and inflection points in 2002 and 2007). 113.10 is a possible pausing point (61.8% of prior range added to breakout level).”

-115.50 put a ceiling on USDJPY this week. Still, support is seen at 114 and its difficult to get excited about downside prospects until a failed run at the high (and lower high).

USD/CAD

-“USDCAD traded to its best levels since July 2009 this week but finished in the middle of its range for the week. The close and weak momentum profile casts doubt regarding the validity of the breakout but continue to look higher as long as price is above 1.1080. The rate also encounters potential resistance near 1.1450 from the upward sloping line that connects the October and 2011 and March 2014 highs.”

-This week’s high was 1.1465, a few ticks above the mentioned upward sloping line. Support is seen at 1.1270-1.1300 and weakness below 1.1120 is needed to break the bull trend.

USD/CHF

-“USDCHF weakness has reset the market for another rally attempt. Remember, USDCHF broke above the trendline that extends off of the 2001 and 2010 highs. Like EURUSD, USDCHF monthly RSI broke from a potentially long term basing pattern. As long as .9358 holds, look higher.”

-“.9740 could serve as resistance for the next top.” Friday’s high was .9740. Like EURUSD, reversal risk is high.
