AUD/USD Aims for 77 Cents
We previously wrote about two potential patterns on AUD/USD and how this market may be a late bloomer to the USD correction. Both patterns suggested a trend higher could be on the horizon. Now that price action has played out for a couple weeks, we did get the bounce higher and it appears as though the ‘x’ wave triangle was the pattern. We have yet to break out to new highs so the pattern still has options.
Under the ‘x’ wave triangle model, the pattern is bullish towards new highs above 78 cents. Therefore, bulls are in charge so long as we are above .7329.
For those intraday traders, we can pinpoint the pattern a little further. A shorter term key level to watch for is the June 13 low of .7524. Holding above this low keeps new highs towards .7640 vulnerable. A break below this level puts bulls on ice while support may form above .7329.
IG Client Sentiment is running at -1.56. Over the past couple weeks this reading has turned negative which is a bullish symptom. Therefore, we have sentiment lining up with the model hinting at further gains for the pair. Learn how to trade with sentiment with our IG client sentiment guide.
