Previous: AUD/USD Breaking Above the 2012 Trendline (6/19)

AUD/USD Daily Chart 2:38PM EDT 6/21/2012


The AUD/USD failed to confirmed a recent break above a trendline that has held the 2012 decline from end of February/beginning of March.

The 6/21 US session pushed the pair below 1.01 and below a rising trendline that held June's correction rally. The 4H RSI is falling below 40, and reflects a loss of the bullish momentum established in June.

The next key level to monitor is the parity, 1.00 level. Note that parity was resistance in an ascending triangle from June 6-13. Now it will be tested as support.

If the market can stay below 1.01 on a pullback, we should have capped June's corrective rally and open up 0.9820 pivot. Below 0.98, we are looking at the 0.96-0.9630 June lows.
