Australian Dollar Price Chart – AUD/USD Weekly

AUDUSD Chart

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

Notes:In my last Australian Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we noted that Aussie was, “testing multi-year trend resistance here and the focus is on the weekly close with respect to this slope. . . be on the lookout for possible topside exhaustion into this region.” Price rallied into the 2018 parallel (red) to register a high at 7413 before reversing sharply with a decline of more than 5.5% rebounding this week off key support at the 2020/2019 objective yearly opens at 7016/42.

The immediate focus is on possible topside exhaustion on this recovery ahead of the 7295-7328resistance zone IF price is indeed heading lower. A break below this key support zone would expose the 2016 low at 6827 backed by a more significant technical confluence at 6660/85- both zones of interest for possible downside exhaustion IF reached. Ultimately a topside breach / close above 7328 is needed to mark resumption of the March rally with such a scenario exposing subsequent objectives at the 38.2% retracement of the 2011 decline at 7635.

Bottom line: The Australian Dollar has rebounded off a key inflection zone and the immediate focus is on possible topside exhaustion on this stretch early in the month. From at trading standpoint, the risk remains tilted to the downside while below 7295 with a break / close below 7016 needed to suggest a deeper Aussie correction is underway. Review my latest Australian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the near-term AUD/USD technical trade levels.
