AUD/USD Weekly Outlook

AUD/USD dropped to as low as 0.6586 last week as larger down trend finally resumed. As a temporary low was formed, initial bias is turned neutral this week for some consolidations first. But upside of recovery should be limited well below 0.6750 resistance to bring fall resumption. Break of 0.6586 will extend recent decline.

In the bigger picture, AUD/USD’s decline from 0.8135 (2018 high) is still in progress. It’s part of the larger down trend from 1.1079 (2011 high). Rejection by 55 week EMA affirms medium term bearishness. Next target is 0.6008 (2008 low). Outlook will stay bearish as long as 0.7031 resistance holds, even in case of strong rebound.

In the longer term picture, prior rejection by 55 month EMA maintained long term bearishness in AUD/USD. That is, down trend from 1.1079 (2011 high) is still in progress. Next downside target is 61.8% projection of 1.1079 to 0.6826 from 0.8135 at 0.5507.
