AUD/USD Rises As US-China Trade War Fears Recede

Fawad Razaqzada

The Australian dollar has been among the strongest of currencies out there today, helped along by a rally in base metal prices. The commodity currency rose in what started out to be a “risk on” day for the markets with global stock indices rising sharply after the US and China backed down from a full-on trade war at the weekend. With China being Australia’s largest trading partner, any positive development for the world’s second largest economy is thus positive for Australia’s export. However, the Italian stock and bond market sell-off held back risk sensitive assets a little, although it wasn’t enough to stop the UK’s FTSE 100 from hitting new all-time highs today. But in the US, the stock markets couldn’t sustain the early rally although the indices were still in the positive territory at the time of writing. Meanwhile the US dollar gave back its earlier gains as the slight risk-off tone in the second half of today’s session supported the likes of the euro, Swiss franc and Japanese yen. Even gold managed to catch a small bid more…

AUDUSD Looking For More Weakness

Grega Horvat

Around early of September of 2017, AUDUSD completed a higher degree complex correction within wave IV. This correction ended with a five-wave drop towards the 0.7650 level, which can in months ahead result as a bigger bearish cycle. Well, this fall gives us an idea of a change in trend from bullish to bearish and can be labeled as red wave 1), that can find potential support near the 0.7562 level and from there breach higher into corrective wave 2). more…

AUDUSD Support At 0.7815

Daud Bhatti

AUDUSD Short Term Elliott Wave view suggests that Primary wave ((W)) ended at 0.7731 on October 6th low. Up from there, Primary wave ((X)) is currently unfolding as a double three Elliott Wave structure. Intermediate Wave (W) of ((X)) ended at 0.7807 and Intermediate wave (X) of ((X)) ended at 0.7815. Near term, while pullbacks stay above 0.7815, but more importantly above 10/6 low at 0.7731, expect pair to extend higher. At this stage, pair still needs to break above Intermediate wave (W) at 0.7815 to give more validity to this view. Until then, we can’t rule out a double correction in Intermediate wave ((X)). more…

AUDUSD Daily And 4h Look

Grega Horvat

AUDUSD is unfolding a bigger bullish leg to the upside, which can be labeled as a higher degree wave C. This wave C can be part of a bigger three-wave recovery, that is unfolding since November of 2015 (visible on the daily chart). However, we belive this big three-wave recovery may be ending, which means upside can be limited and a new change in trend can follow more…

AUD/USD Slow Zig-Zag Towards 0.7580

Nenad Kerkez

As we could see on yesterday’s Live Trading webinar, straight after our live trading session, the AUD/USD has rejected and made pips in the bearish direction. That was a counter trade opportunity we had, but today the AUD/USD might proceed with the trend. The POC zone is 0.7510-20 (D L4, ATR pivot, bullish order block, EMA89) and if we see a retracement, the pair might reject from the POC zone targeting H3 and H4 camarilla pivots. 1 hour candle close above 1.7568 might target 1.7586 and further 0.7617 on a stronger momentum push. Have in mind that the ATR (range) of the pair is small, only 57 pips so 0.7580 zone is looking more realistic should the bullish momentum prevail. more…

AUD/USD Bullish Wicks Mark New Wave Of Buyers

Nenad Kerkez

The AUD has been rebounding of late, with stronger Employment numbers for the month and a reduction in the Unemployment Rate to 5.7% as it approaches full employment. Interestingly, the MI Inflation target is 4% for the next 12 months, which may signal rate hikes in the near future. USD weakness continues, and the USD Index looks destined a bit lower, with lower manufacturing numbers, but with all other indicators relatively stable, the concerns lie with whether Trump can now deliver on his Tax cut promises for the next boost to the US economy. more…

Daud Bhatti
