AUD/USD TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: BEARISH

  • AUD may retest near 0.69 after completing bullish Flag pattern
  • Overall price direction continues to favor a broadly bearish bias
  • Counter-trend line break needed for actionable short-side setup

The Australian Dollar may move up to retest the 0.69 figure against its US counterpart before the broader downward trend resumes in earnest. Prices rebounded after testing resistance-turned-support at 0.6811, completing a bullish Flag chart pattern (as suspected last week).

Initial resistance is marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.6856. A break above that opens the door for a test of the 0.6886-95 area marking the to of the range confining trade since mid-September. This barrier is reinforced by the 38.2% level at 0.6887.

Turning to the daily chart for a broader picture suggests the dominant trend bias still looks decidedly bearish however. AUD/USD remains capped by resistance leading it lower since early December 2018. A daily close above that level – now at 0.6946 – is needed to convincingly neutralize selling pressure.

In this context, any near-term gains look likely to be corrective (at least for now), offering a potential opportunity to establish shorts relatively more attractive levels. An actionable trade setup probably requires bearish resumption confirmation on a close below counter-trend support set from October lows.
