AUD/USD Fundamental Analysis and Forecast (based on the article)

With no major domestic data scheduled on this week, CBA's Chief Currency Strategist Richard Grace believes markets will be paying close attention to movements in the Chinese renminbi given the PBOC signaled on Friday its intention to change the way it will manage the value of the CNY moving forward.

"The PBoC signaled its intention to change the way it will manage the value of the CNY by potentially loosening the peg to the USD and starting to track CNY against a trade-weighted basket of currencies," wrote Grace.


From the technical point of view - intra-day price (H4) is on ranging market condition: the price was bounced from 0.7159 support level to be between 100 SMA/200 SMA area breaking 23.6% Fibo level from below to above for 50.0% Fibo level as the next target:

  • if the price breaks 50.0% Fibo resistance level at 0.7246 to above so the reversal of intra-day price to the primary bullish market condition will be started;
  • if the price breaks 0.7159 support level so we may see the bearish market condition for this pair on intra-day H4 chart;
  • if not so the price will be ranging within the levels.

AUD/USD: short-term strategy, long-term strategy and the levels to watch - Swiss Finance Corporation (based on the article)

  • Short-term strategy: "Negative below 0.7240/7310 with scope for limited losses ahead. Short strategy off 0.7250 is stil in the money. Reconsider booking profits on downticks or stick to shorts with stops trailed down to entry level, targeting retest of recent lows."
  • Long-term strategy: "No change. Positive above m/t support @ 0.7020. Sustained break above 0.7720 opens 0.7380/7440 (partially met)as next targets. Sharp rejection off 0.7380 signals bull exhaustion and possible top in place. Book profits on upticks or trail stops up to 0.7160."
  • Levels to watch: "0.7160 on the downside 0.73 on the upside."


As we see from the chart above - the price (H4) is ranging between 100 period SMA and 200 period SMA waiting for direction.

  • If the price will break 0.7262 resistance level on close H4 bar so the bullish trend to be started on this timeframe.
  • If price will break 0.7158 support on close H4 bar so we may see the bearish market condition for this intra-day price.
  • If not so the price will be ranging within the levels.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: re-enter for short (based on the article)

  • "The Australian Dollar continues to consolidate below the 0.73 figure against its US counterpart having broken support set from early November. Overall positioning may be carving out a bearish Head and Shoulders topping pattern, although confirmation is still pending for now."
  • "From here, a daily close below resistance-turned-support at 0.7184 opens the door for a challenge of 0.7089, the intersection of a rising trend line set from September lows and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. Alternatively, a push above horizontal pivot resistance at 0.7283 paves the way for a test of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 0.7387."
  • "We sold AUD/USD at 0.7250 and subsequently booked profit on half of the position."


Anyway, H4 price is located near 100 period SMA on the border between the primary bullish and the ranging bearish trend on the chart with the symmetric triangle pattern to be crossed for direction:

  • if the price breaks 0.7268 resistance so the reversal to the primary bullsh condition will be started;
  • if the price breaks 0.7158 support level so the primary bearish trend will be continuing with the secondary ranging up to the new 'bottom' to be forming;
  • if not so the price will be moved within the channel.

USD, EUR/USD, AUD/USD and GBP/USD Into FOMC (adapted from the article)

Credit Suisse and Credit Agricole are forecasting the Fed rates hike for today telling that Fed will maintain a dovish tone during the FOMC Statement:

2014-12-16 19:00 GMT | [USD - Federal Funds Rate]

  • past data is 0.25%
  • forecast data is 0.50%
  • actual data is N/A according to the latest press release

if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for USD in our case)

[USD - Federal Funds Rate] = Interest rate at which depository institutions lend balances held at the Federal Reserve to other depository institutions overnight. Short term interest rates are the paramount factor in currency valuation - traders look at most other indicators merely to predict how rates will change in the future.

==========

Credit Suisse, Credit Agricole and some other int'l financial institutions are forecasting the ranging volatile market condition during and after FOMC mettings because of the following:

  • they predict for Federal Funds Rate actual value to be 0.50% compare with the 0.25% as the previous one, and if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for USD in our case), but
  • they are expecting less hawkish (more dovish tone) during the FOMC Statement, and as we know: less hawkish is bad for currency (for USD in our case).

Thus, we may see the ranging condition in intra-day basis for the major currency pairs.

What does it mean for EUR/USD, AUD/USD and GBP/USD for example?

==========

EUR/USD H4: Ranging. The price is on ranging condition located near and above 100 SMA/200 SMA within the following key reversal support/resistance levels:

  • 1.1059 resistance located above 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bullish area of the chart, and
  • 1.0520 support level located below 100 SMA/200 SMA in the primary bearish area of the chart.



According to above mentioned forecast - the price will continuing with the ranging condition within the levels
.

==========

AUD/USD H4: Ranging on bearish reversal. The price is on ranging condition located near 200 SMA on the border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend on the chart within the following key reversal support/resistance levels:

  • 0.7384 resistance located above 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bullish area of the chart, and
  • 0.7159 support level located below 100 SMA/200 SMA in the primary bearish area of the chart.



Thus, we can foresee the price to break 200 SMA from above to below for 0.7159 as the next bearish target which means the reversal of intra-day price movement to the primary bearish market condition
.

==========

GBP/USD H4: Ranging. The price is located near and below 100 SMA/200 SMA for the ranging market condition within the following key reversal support/resistance levels:

  • 1.5239 resistance located above 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bullish area of the chart, and
  • 1.4894 support level located below 100 SMA/200 SMA in the primary bearish area of the chart.



The most likely scenario for the intra-day price is to be moved during and immediate after FOMC meetings with the ranging condition within the levels, and in long-term situation - bearish market condition by 1.49/1.48 support area to be broken
.
