Australian Dollar Outlook
The Australian dollar has fallen a bit during the trading session on Friday, only to turn around and form a bit of a hammer. At this point, it looks like we will continue to see a lot of buying pressure on dips, as this area underneath continues to be one that people pay attention to. With that, I like the idea of buying dips, and I realize that it is only a matter of time before the market participants come back in and push this thing to the upside. I see a lot of support down at the 0.71 handle, which is not only massive support but has the 50 day EMA crossing through it.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 31.0787. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 4 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 57.55. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 4 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 14. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 4 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 1 period(s) ago.
