Australian Dollar Drop - Reversal or Buying Opportunity?

Australian Dollar Drop - Reversal or Buying Opportunity?

DailyFX Edge combines the opinion of an experienced market analyst with the science of EidoSearch, a powerful pattern recognition tool.

The AUDUSD decline from the 2/8 high may be complete as a 4th wave correction. The implications are for a final bull leg that probably reaches the 2011 high at 11080. Common Fibonacci relationships define objectives as well; Wave 5 = 1 at 11153 and wave 5 = 61.8% of waves 1-3 at 11236.

(Elliott wave theory posits that moves in 5 waves are followed by at least a 3 wave move in the opposite direction).

AUDUSD 60 Minute Bars

Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

AUDUSD corrective characteristics include the 3 wave drop, price adhering to a channel, and the equality of waves a and c (exact equality would be at 10600, the low is currently 10604). Ideally, a low is in place at 10604 but the 2/1 low at 10568 allows for a more objective stop.

EidoSearch – 10 Day Backtest

A search for patterns that match the series of closes from 01/06/12 (wave 2 closing low) to 02/21/12 returns 55 matches with a score of 80 or better. 10 days later, the AUDUSD had advanced 33 times by an average of 2.00% and declined 22 times by an average of (1.06%). The largest advance after 10 days was 6.84% and the largest decline after 10 days was 5.98%.

Summary and Trade Idea

The EidoSearch test results confirm the call for a 5th wave rally to a new high. In other words, the edge over the next 10 days is with bulls. In general, look for lows in early Australian trade (5-7 pm EST). Longs are favored against the 2/1 low of 10568. A drop below that level exposes 10450. The minimum objective is 10844 but a more aggressive objective is above 11200. Follow me on Twitter @JamieSaettele for updates.
