6/24/2009 € AUD/USD € Price action on AUD/USD, a daily chart of which is shown, has made a third bounce up off a key uptrend support line extending from the March lows. This occurs within the context of a continuing sideways consolidation that is also plaguing several other dollar-based currency pairs. Currently, after the noted trendline bounce, price has reached a short-term downtrend resistance line extending from the failed re-test of the 0.8260 high on 6/11/2009. Any strong breakout above this short-term downtrend line should target yet another re-test of that high, which is the top of the current consolidation. Downside support within the context of the current prevailing uptrend resides around the 0.7800 price region.
