Australian Dollar: AUDUSD Heading Lower

$AUD #FX #Currency #Australian #Dollar $AUDUSD

The Australian dollar versus the United States dollar currency pair appears to have some trouble heading towards the north. Is this a sign of a bearish comeback?

Long-term perspective

The appreciation that started from the 0.7501 low, after the level of 0.5516 was validated as support, managed to pass the important resistance area defined by the level of 0.6386 and the downward trendline. This aided the extension of the appreciation until the 0.7041 high.

However, even if the ascending trendline supported the price for as long as attainable, the appreciation appears to be out of power, as the rally attempts were either turned in their tracks or decelerated.

As a result, the ascending trendline was pierced. Noteworthy is to say that this happened after the price was, yet again, turned away from the 0.7010 firm level.

In this case, the bears may be entitled to believe that it is their turn to drive the market. So, if they send the price to the 0.6873 intermediary level, then they would have won the first battle.

But for an actual trend change to occur, they need to validate 0.6873 as resistance. If this happens, then the 0.6722 level is their next stop. This might also be an area from where the bulls could begin a comeback.

If 0.6722 does cede, then the bears will put the 0.6386 level as their main destination, at least for the time being. On the flip side, if the bulls do manage to conquer and validate 0.7010 as support, then the 0.7191 level would serve as their target.

FOREX AUD= is currently 4.4% above its 200-period moving average and is in an downward trend. Volatility is extremely low when compared to the average volatility over the last 10 periods.
