Key support remains at 0.9072 (07/05/2015 low) while resistance at 1.0344 (15/12/2016 high) is distanced. The technical structure favours a long term bullish bias since the unpeg in January 2015.

AUD/USD

Reversing pattern.

  • AUD/USD quickly bounced back from 0.7773 (14/02/2018 low) and continues its hike above resistance at 0.7925 (12/01/2018), heading toward 0.80. Hourly support remains at 0.7638 (15/12/2017 low). The technical structure suggests further short-term upside moves.

  • In the long-term, the upward trend resumes after failing to reach key resistance at 0.8164 (14/05/2015 low). Key support stands at 0.6009 (31/10/2008 low). A break of the key resistance at 0.8164 (14/05/2015 high) is needed to invalidate our long-term bearish view.
