AUD/USD - ranging around 200-day SMA waiting for the direction of the trend (based on the article)

Daily price was on breakout with the bullish reversal: price broke 200 SMA to below to be reversed to the primary bullish area of the chart, and it was bounced from 0.7608 resistance level to below for the ranging condition to be started with the waiting for the direction of the trend.


  • "The Australian Dollarhas broken through the floor of the rising trend guiding prices higher since the beginning of the year, hinting that the long-term down trend is resuming. The breakdown occurred against a backdrop of negative RSI divergence, bolstering the case for a topping scenario."
  • "Initial support is in the 0.7463-98 area (horizontal pivot, 23.6% Fibonacci expansion), with a break below that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 38.2% level at 0.7373. Alternatively, a reversal above the January 24 high at 0.7609 sees the next major upside barrier at 0.7760, a double top."
  • "Prices are too close to near-term support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, an entry order to sell the pair at 0.7572 has been established. If activated the trade will initially target 0.7498 and carry a stop-loss activated on a daily close above 0.7609."

Technical Intra-Day Targets for AUD/USD by United Overseas Bank (based on the article)

AUD/USD: bullish to be resumed

H4 price is above 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bullish area of the chart: the price broke symmetric triangle pattern to above with 0.7680 resistance level to be broken for the bullish trend to be resumed. By the way, UOB is evaluating the trend for this pair as a bullish with 0.7700 key resistance level:

"AUD desperately need to ‘punch above’ the major 0.7700 resistance or the risk of short-term top would increase rapidly. In other words, the bullish phase that started last Friday may come to a premature end unless there is a move above 0.7700 within these 1 to 2 days. Alternatively, a break below 0.7595 would also indicate that a short-term top is in place."

RSI indicator is estimating the ranging trend to be continuing in the near future.  

  • If the price will break 0.7680 resistance level on close H4 bar so the primary bullish trend will be resumed with 0.7695 target to re-enter.
  • If price will break 0.7605 support on close bar so the secondary correction within the primary bullish trend will be started.
  • If not so the price will be on bullish ranging within the levels.


Resistance
Support
0.76800.7605
0.7700N/A
  • Recommendation to go short: watch the price to break 0.7605 support level for possible sell trade
  • Recommendation to go long: watch the price to break 0.7680 resistance level for possible buy trade
  • Trading Summary: ranging

AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: RBA Gov Lowe Speech and 36 pips range price movement

2017-02-09 09:00 GMT | [AUD - RBA Gov Lowe Speaks]

[AUD - RBA Gov Lowe Speaks] = Speech at the A50 Australian Economic Forum Dinner, in Sydney.

==========

From official report:

  • "I would like now to turn to the near-term outlook for the Australian economy. The Reserve Bank will be releasing updated detailed forecasts tomorrow in our quarterly Statement on Monetary Policy. or 2017 and 2018, these forecasts will show little change from our earlier forecasts. Over the next couple of years we expect GDP growth to be around the 3 per cent mark. In both years it will be boosted by a significant pick-up in LNG production. And the headwinds that we have been experiencing from the unwinding of the biggest mining investment boom in a century will blow themselves out. Indeed, we are already around 90 per cent of the way through the fall from the peak to expected trough in mining investment. Another headwind we have had over recent years – that is the decline in our terms of trade – has already stopped. Since earlier last year, a rise in global commodity prices has provided a boost to our national income. And the improvement in the global economy since late last year should also help us."
  • "Inflation remains low, running at around 1½ per cent in both headline and underlying terms. Importantly, inflation is not expected to fall further. Instead, our central forecast is for underlying inflation to gradually rise over the next couple of years, and for headline inflation to increase a bit more quickly, boosted by increases in oil and tobacco prices."
  • "In summary then, the Bank's central scenario is for some pick-up in economic growth and for inflation to move gradually higher. As always, though, there are risks around that outlook. As our record demonstrates, our economy does have a degree of resilience and flexibility that has allowed us to maintain stability during a pretty difficult time in the global economy. There is no reason that this can't continue. But we do need to continue to build that resilience, while we take advantage of the considerable advantages that we have as a nation."
