AUDUSD Bouncing Off Weekly Chart Upchannel Support


Bookmark and Share

The AUDUSD rallied more than 50 pips in today's Asia morning on the back of Australia's Current Account and Retail Sales figures at 730pm EST, and the RBA rate statement at 1030pm EST. The AUDUSD is now testing descending wedge resistance (on the daily chart), and bouncing off upchannel support (on the weekly chart). Before bulls become overly enthusiastic, they'll want to see the AUDUSD break above the daily chart descending wedge resistance (which should flatten the weekly MACD green line). Other than the weekly MACD, the weekly, daily and 4hr RSI, Stochastics and MACD are bottomish or rallying. I am flat after profitably closing a long today and am looking to re-enter long in the green zone (of the daily chart), targeting the red zone for Thursday. The amber/yellow zone is where I might place a stop if I was a swing trader (although in my personal account with which I seldom hold overnight I set my stops tighter).
