AUD Technical Outlook: AUD/USD Holding Long-term Support, For Now
At the very tail finish of January as markets have been in full-on risk-off mode, AUD/USD examined an important threshold of help on the 7000 line. A stage that has been in play since October of 2018. The flooring together with a restoration in danger urge for food has the Aussie now heading in direction of development resistance.
The trend-line operating decrease from the October peak is more likely to come into play any day now. It isn’t a time-tested threshold like help is, however given the wedging worth habits happening in current months the trend-line may make up the top-side line of a wedge.
For this situation to develop legs we might want to see AUD/USD weaken across the trend-line. A flip again decrease would tighten up the vary even additional bringing a full-fledged wedge into play. The level the place this might develop into of great curiosity remains to be a number of weeks off because the sample wants extra time to develop. But nonetheless it may make for a robust set-up.
The descending nature of the sample and basic downtrend since final 12 months suggests it will result in an eventual break of the 7000 line, however it’s too quickly to make that decision. It may result in an eventual breakout to the upside.
Or, we may even see nothing in any respect occur with regard to the additional growth of this sample, as AUD/USD could proceed to commerce greater with little regard for the trend-line. We might want to pay shut consideration to momentum as the road will get examined.
If the trend-line doesn’t maintain as resistance within the days to return, then search for the Jan excessive at 7314 as the subsequent stage of resistance. That excessive is adopted by confluent resistance consisting of the 200-day shifting common and almost one-year trend-line operating down from late Feb final 12 months.
