AUD/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that there had been little change to the technical picture. Overall it was still too bullish to be really confident about taking any short trades, so I would still look for longs. I was ready to be very bullish if the price could trade above 0.6937 for a couple of hours consecutively later.

This was a reasonably good call, as although the price actually fell, the nearest support level at 0.6912 has held up so far. As long as this level holds, the technical picture remains more bullish than bearish although maybe not be a lot.

I am sure that 0.6912 is extremely likely to be today’s pivotal point. The next support level below that also looks very attractive as an area to find a long trade entry. Alternatively, if the price goes on to rise but fails strongly to break the resistance at 0.6936 again, that would be a bearish sign, producing a bearish double top.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD. Regarding the AUD, there will be a release of Building Approvals and Private Capital Expenditure data at 2:30am.
