AUDUSD : Price Trading Near Channel, More Gains Could Follow

Gregor Horvat

AUDUSD is trading higher after no change in rates from the RBA members. Price rallied nicely up to 0.7200, now trading at resistance line of a corrective channel where successful breakout with a daily close around 0.7250 would put bullish prices back in play. In that case we will look back towards 0.7400 as decline from October highs would be treated as a completed correction. more…

AUD/NZD: Home, Home On The Range

Matt Weller

We’re seeing mixed performance in the foreign exchange market Wednesday, with the greenback rallying against most of its rivals (prominently including pound sterling and all of the commodity dollars) but drastically trailing its biggest rival, the euro. Until this muddled performance shakes out into a one-sided trend for the greenback, some traders may want to explore other currency crosses, including AUD/NZD. more…

AUD/NZD: On The Verge Of Breakdown?

Fawad Razaqzada

The AUD/NZD is probably not under many traders’ radars at the moment given for example the sharp moves in stocks and the US dollar recently, but this cross could be one for those who would like to take the greenback totally out of the equation. The AUD/NZD surged higher in early April from a low of just above parity to a high so far this year of about 1.1425/30. The rally thus took out the 2014 high of 1.1300. But as can be seen on the chart, the bulls were unable to hold their ground there for too long and prices have generally held below this handle for this best part of the past two months, without causing too much pain for the bulls. more…

GBPAUD: Bulls in Control Ahead of “Super Thursday” Shenanigans

Matt Weller

As my colleague Kathleen Brooks noted yesterday in her in-depth preview, today is a major day for the British pound (see “Bank of England: Binge Watching the Bank’s Next Move”). In addition to the monetary policy meeting itself, the Bank of England will also release the minutes from its previous meeting and most importantly of all, its Quarterly Inflation Report, which outlines the policymakers’ longer-term views on the economy and monetary policy. It’s no exaggeration to say that the information revealed during “Super Thursday” could impact trade in sterling not just for the day or week, but for months to come. more…

AUDUSD Is At New Low, Targeting 0.7200

Gregor Horvat

AUDUSD is at new low after the pair completed fourth wave pullback, but earlier than we thought. However, our main focus was for a continuation down to lower levels which are now coming in play as pair already trades in wave 5 of 3) that can be targeting 0.7200 soon. Based on the lasts price action we expect a bounce next week again into a fourth wave of a larger degree. more…

AUDUSD Looks For Correction

Gregor Horvat

AUDUSD is at new lows which has been expected in the last few months as rally from April to May highs has a clear corrective personality as mentioned at the time. We labeled it as wave (4), so current leg down from 0.8160 should then be wave (5), final leg within a bearish sequence. However, before we may look for a bottom formation we need five subwaves down into around 0.7000 area where bottom could be seen sometime this year. more…

AUDUSD: Wave (5 ) In Play For 0.7300-0.7100

Gregor Horvat

Back in April AUDUSD has turned bullish for some time, but most likely only temporary as rally from the low was having an overlapping structure. We know that this is a characteristics of a contra-trend price action, so trend remains bearish for now within impulse that is in play since mid-2014.We see market moving sharply lower now after broken upward channel, so wave (5) is in play for a move down to 0.7100-0.7300 area. more…
