AUD/USD Technical Forecast: Searching for a Bottom

AUD/USD Technical Forecast: Searching for a Bottom

The structure of the technical pattern for AUD/USD suggests the move towards higher levels is incomplete and may eventually reach .82 and possible .84.

Do you struggle with your trading? This could be why.

The Elliott Wave model we are following suggests the upward correction that began in September 2015 remains incomplete. According to Elliott Wave Theory, we are counting this pattern as a complex upward correction subdivided as w-x-y and built with Expanded Flat-Triangle-Zigzag.

AUD/USD Technical Forecast: Searching for a Bottom

Zooming in on an intraday chart for the zigzag, we are just about halfway through the pattern. Therefore, once wave (b) of the zigzag completes, AUD/USD would resume to higher prices in a five wave motive wave.

AUD/USD Technical Forecast: Searching for a Bottom

Wave (b) of the zigzag pattern is an expanded flat pattern. Traders can keep an eye on .7508-.7568 as a potential turning point for AUD/USD. This price zone contains a couple different wave relationships. Additionally, a trend line passes through near .7600 so we are anticipating that softness in AUD/USD may end up being temporary.

The orange resistance trend line will be noteworthy. AUD/USD has been rubbing along the bottom of this line. If AUD/USD moves up above this orange resistance line, then the break higher will serve as an early warning signal of higher prices.

Soft horizontal resistance sits near .7666 and above .7730 elevates the probabilities the low is in for a retest of .82 and possibly higher levels.

IG Client Sentiment is running at near parity at +1.28. Therefore, sentiment is not extreme at this point. Keep an eye to see if a shift in sentiment ensues and lines up with the Elliott Wave forecast. See how live traders are positioned in AUDUSD here.
