AUDUSD: The short term momentum indicators look a little heavy

The Aud has taken advantage of the positive technicals in reaching a high of 0.7915 after the US Retail Sales but then turned lower as risk sentiment soured, closing the day back at 0.7880.

1 hour/4 hour indicators: Mixed.

Daily Indicators: Turning higher

Weekly Indicators:  Turning lower?

Preferred Strategy:

The short term momentum indicators look a little heavy today although the dailies remain constructive and this allows the chance of a return to 0.7900 and 0.7915 in coming sessions. Above there would open the way towards 0.7975 although possibly not yet.

On the downside, support will be seen at 0.7845/50 and again at 0.7820. Further out, 0.7800, 0.7780 and the 7 Mar low of 0.7771 are rather distant targets although this currently seems a long way off.
