AUD/USD TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: BEARISH

  • Aussie Dollar erases tepid breakdown, snaps back into familiar range
  • Overall AUD chart setup still argues for a broadly bearish trend bias
  • Long-term positioning hints a move to test below 0.64 is in the cards

Last week, the Australian Dollar cautiously edged past range support, seemingly setting the stage for a move below the 0.67 figure. A warning about false breakout risk proved prescient however as prices recoiled from one-month lows to undo the breach and return to a familiar congestion region.

Buyers have their work cut out for them if they hope to mount a lasting rally however. Back-to-back resistance levels run from 0.6827 up to the bounds of the 2019 downtrend, now at 0.7020. A daily close above that is probably needed to neutralize the near-term bearish bias.

Longer-term positioning seems to bolster sellers’ argument. The monthly chart reveals prices finished August with the weakest close in over a decade. This follows a breach of 20-year rising trend floor and a push through a four-year support shelf. The next major downside hurdle begins at 0.6352 and runs to the 0.60 figure.
