EUR/AUD Weekly Outlook

EUR/AUD continued to stay in consolidation pattern from 1.5886 and outlook is unchanged. Initial bias remains neutral this week first. Further rise is expected with 1.5695 support holds. On the upside break of 1.5886 will resume the rebound from 1.5271 and target a test on 1.6189 high. Nonetheless, the momentum and structure of such rise from 1.5271 are not too convincing. Break of 1.5696 will suggest near term reversal and turn bias to the downside for 1.5425 support for confirmation.

In the bigger picture, current development suggests that fall from 1.6189 is a corrective move and has completed at 1.5217 already. Key support levels of 1.5153 and 38.2% retracement of 1.3624 to 1.6189 at 1.5209 were defended. And medium term rise from 1.3624 (2017 low) is still in progress. Break of 1.6189 will target 1.6587 key resistance (2015 high).

In the longer term picture, the rise from 1.1602 long term bottom (2012 low) isn’t over yet. We’ll keep monitoring the development but there is prospect of extending the rise to 61.8% retracement of 2.1127 to 1.1602 at 1.7488 and above. However, sustained trading below 1.3624 key support should indicate long term reversal and target 1.1602 long term bottom again.
