Australian Dollar Price Chart – AUD/USD Weekly

AUDUSD Price Chart

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

Notes:In my last Australian Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we noted that the, “focus is on a break of this multi-week consolidation formation in the Australian Dollar with the broader rally vulnerable while below 7042.” The outlook remains unchanged heading into the close of the week and although Aussie is poised to close its third consecutive weekly advance, the rally remains vulnerable while below the 2020/2019 yearly open resistance at 7016/42.

A breach / close above this threshold is needed to mark resumption of the broader March rally with such a scenario eyeing subsequent topside resistance objective at the 61.8% retracement of the 2018 decline at 7120 and the 2018 swing high / May 2017 low at 7295-7328. Weekly support levels unchanged at the 2019 low close at 6733 with broader bullish invalidation steady at the 2008 low-week close / 2019 swing low at 6660/70.

Bottom line: The immediate once again is on this approach into key lateral resistance. From a trading standpoint, be on the lookout for possible topside exhaustion with the immediate long-bias vulnerable while below 7042. Ultimately, a larger pullback may offer more favorable opportunities closer to trend support with topside breach exposing the 2013 trendline. Review my latest Australian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the near-term AUD/USD technical trade levels.

  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests AUD/USD prices may continue to rise. Traders are less net-short than yesterday but more net-short from last week. The combination of current positioning and recent changes gives us a further mixed AUD/USD trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.
