Previous: AUD/USD in Counter-Trend Breakout... (3/28)

AUD/USD

AUD/USD

 

The AUD/USD slid throughout the 3/29 Asian-European session. As we start the 3/29 US session, the pair is trading at the previous low at 1.0336, also testing a rising trendline that goes back to October, 2011. The 4H chart shows very persistent bearish momentum as the market tries to break open the bearish scenario.

The daily chart shows a couple of key support pivots under 1.03 and the rising trendline. If the market on a subsequent pullback respects the 200-day simple moving average in the vicinity of 1.04 (give it some elbow space), then further downside can be seen to 1.0150 and then 0.9860. The parity level could also provide some psychological support.

A confirmation of momentum would be the 4H RSI reading dipping below 30, and the daily RSI reading dipping below 40 (and eventually 30).
