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

==========

Business confidence rises despite Brexit, election campaign :
  • "NAB's widely watched monthly business survey was undertaken in June amidst the uncertainty generated by the Brexit vote and Australia's federal election campaign.
  • "It shows business confidence bouncing back to +6, a level last seen in April, and conditions surging from +10 to +12 in June.
  • "NAB said that level of business conditions is consistent with post-GFC highs.
  • "We are very much seeing a continuation of the positive trends evident in the survey for some time now."
  • "Strong activity seems to be having a positive effect on labour demand in the survey, despite recent 'questionable' official labour market statistics suggesting otherwise."
  • "The mining sector was the only one with negative conditions, although it recorded an improvement. However, retail did record a fairly steep fall in conditions."
  • "The deterioration in retail coincides with big declines in retail price growth, highlighting the competitive and cost pressures facing the industry."

AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: Westpac-Melbourne Institute Consumer Sentiment and 17 pips price movement

2016-07-13 00:30 GMT | [AUD - Westpac Consumer Sentiment]

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

[AUD - Westpac Consumer Sentiment] = Change in the level of a diffusion index based on surveyed consumers.

==========

  • "With the major events of ‘Brexit’ and prolonged election uncertainty it is not surprising to see a fall in the Index. In fact, given these developments, this fall appears to be surprisingly modest."
  • "The survey was conducted over the period July 4 to July 7. By the time of the survey market volatility associated with ‘Brexit’ had largely settled down and media commentary was, correctly in my view, concentrating on the implications for the UK economy rather than the initial reaction which speculated on some disastrous contagion for the whole of Europe. However concerns would have lingered for many respondents given the blanket publicity which the ‘Brexit’ development received."

Fundamental Weekly Forecasts for Dollar Index, GBP/USD, USD/CAD, USD/JPY, NZD/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CNH and GOLD (based on the article)

AUD/USD - "On the geopolitical front, an attempted military coup in Turkey late Friday complicates the landscape further. The country’s proximity to and significant economic linkages with Western Europe may fuel fears that turmoil there will amplify existing post-Brexit vulnerabilities, catalyzing a broader unraveling."


D1 price is located above 200 SMA for the bullish condition on ranging within the following support/resistance levels:

  • 0.7657 resistance located on the bullish area of the chart, and
  • 0.7324 support level located near 200 SMA on the border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend.

If the price will break 0.7657 resistance level so the primary bullish trend will be continuing with 0.7834 bullish target.
If price will break 0.7324 support so the reversal of the daily price movement from the primary bullish to the primary bearish market condition will be started with 0.7144 nearest bearish daily target.
If not so the price will be ranging within the levels.

Support
0.76570.7324

  • Recommendation to go short: watch the price to break 0.7324 support level for possible sell trade

AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: Reserve Bank of Australia Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes and and 41 pips price movement

2016-07-19 01:30 GMT | [AUD - Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes]

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

[AUD - Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes] = It's a detailed record of the RBA Reserve Bank Board's most recent meeting, providing in-depth insights into the economic conditions that influenced their decision on where to set interest rates.

==========

From Economic Calendar article:

Officials at the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) are awaiting further information on growth and inflation before deciding whether to adjust monetary policy, the minutes of the July 5 meetings revealed Tuesday.

“The Board noted that further information on inflationary pressures, the labour market and housing market activity would be available over the following month and that the staff would provide an update of their forecasts ahead of the August Statement on Monetary Policy,” the official July 5 minutes said. “This information would allow the Board to refine its assessment of the outlook for growth and inflation and to make any adjustment to the stance of policy that may be appropriate.”

The RBA voted to keep its benchmark interest rate at 1.75% earlier this month. That was the second consecutive month interest rates have remained on hold. Policymakers voted to cut the benchmark rate by 25 basis points to 1.75% in May, a new all-time low.

AUD/USD Intra-Day Technical Analysis - bearish ranging within narrow levels (adapted from the article)

H1 price is located below 100 SMA/200 SMA reversal in the primary bearish area of the chart. The price is on ranging within key support/resistance levels waiting for direction.

  • "The AUD/USD continues to consolidate today, after moving to new weekly lows late in Wednesdays trading. The weekly low for the AUD/USD currently resides at .7452, and this value comprises a key point of support for an ongoing trading range. Resistance has been noted in the graph below as the last swing high for July 19, found at a price of .757. As prices continue to range traders should continue to track short-term momentum, coupled with support and resistance, to pinpoint any future breakouts in price."
  • "Alternatively, traders may look for a retracement in price if price begin to turn back towards range support. The Grid Sight Index found prices declined 9 pips in 48% of the reviewed historical matches. A move through the first bearish distribution, found at .7496, would open the pair for further declines. It should be noted that prices only fell 33 pips, in only 3% of historical instances. This places today’s final bearish distribution at a price of .7472."
  • The resistance levels for the price are 0.7507 and 0.7606.
  • The support levels are the following: 0.7461 and 0.7449.


  • If H1 price breaks 0.7507 resistance level to above on close bar so the local uptrend as the bear market rally will be started with 0.7606 possible target.
  • If H1 price breaks 0.7461 support so the bearish trend will be continuing with 0.7449 target to re-enter.
  • If not so the price will be ranging within the levels.

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

H4 price is below Ichimoku for the bearish market condition with the ranging within the following key narrow s/r levels:

  • 0.7513 resistance level located below Ichimoku cloud in the beginning of the bear market rally to be started, and
  • 0.7449 support level located far below Ichimoku cloud in the bearish area of the chart.

Absolute Strength indicator is estimating the ranging market condition in the near future.


Daily price. United Overseas Bank is expecting for this pair to be more bearish:

"The price action is line with our expectation but the down-move has been more rapid than expected and a clear break below 0.7445 would greatly increase the odds for further decline to 0.7400, possibly to 0.7330. Overall, this pair is expected to stay under pressure unless it can reclaim 0.7560. On a shorter-term note, 0.7530 is already a strong resistance."


  • If daily price breaks 0.7675 resistance level on close bar so the bullish trend will be continuing.
  • If daily price breaks 0.7449 support level on close bar so the reversal of the daily price movement from the ranging bullish to the primary bearish market condition will be started.
  • If not so the price will be ranging within the levels.
