Stevens was happy on GDP result
Stevens is speaking in Perth today saying that the swings in the Aussie have helped avoid damaging cycle of inflation and bust while remaining bullish for a continued moderate economic growth in the economy. All in all, the air remains an air of optimism and although the reaction was limited in the Aussie, with it having been already well bid up to the trend line and the anticipated bullish result mostly priced in, the price will likely target a strong resistance level at 0.7370 and October highs while awaiting the Nonfarm Payrolls showdown at the end of the week from the US.
AUD/USD sell off due?
Technically, a break of the Oct highs and current trend line brings the 200 DMA at 0.7467 into scope for a more convincing case of a correction of the trend. However, a lack of demand here at the trend line could raise a case for a sell-off in a resumption of the downtrend in the nearterm. To the downside, the 55 SMA at 0.7246 on the hourly time frames stand as a strong level of support around the cluster of MA's at that juncture.
