AUD/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.7094; (P) 0.7112; (R1) 0.7138; More…

AUD/USD’s strong rebound indicates short term bottoming at 0.7084, on bullish convergence condition in 4 hour MACD. Intraday bias is back on the upside for further rebound. But for now, we’d still expect upside to be limited well below 0.7361 resistance to bring down trend resumption. On the downside, break of 0.7084 will resume the fall from 0.8135 for key support level at 0.6826. However, sustained break of 0.7361 will carry larger bullish implication.

In the bigger picture, rebound from 0.6826 (2016 low) is seen as a corrective move that should be completed at 0.8135. Fall from there would extend to have a test on 0.6826. There is prospect of resuming long term down trend from 1.1079 (2011 high). Current downside momentum as seen in daily and weekly MACD support this bearish case. Firm break of 0.6826 will target 0.6008 key support next (2008 low). On the upside, break of 0.7361 resistance is needed to be the first sign of medium term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish even in case of strong rebound.
