Australian Dollar Forecast to Test Key Lows
Trade Implications – AUDUSD: It remains a frustrating run of performance for our purely sentiment-driven Momentum2 strategy, as it has flipped direction on AUDUSD four times in the past three weeks. It is subsequently difficult to get excited about its current short position from $1.0244, but it’s clear that trading crowds have bought aggressively into recent weakness.
The month of May has thus far proven kind to the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR), and it seems relevant to wonder whether this is the start of a larger AUDUSD breakdown. Our Senior Technical Strategist believes that AUD-short positions remain attractive on the potential for said continuation.
