Australian Dollar: USD/AUD (AUD=X) Pulls Back To Fair Value
The Australian dollar has pulled back to fair value during the trading session on Monday as we continue to see a lot of noise when it comes to the US/China trade talks, essentially going nowhere as expected. Unfortunate for Australia, the Australian dollar is highly sensitive to China.
The Australian dollar has initially tried to rally during the trading session on Monday but gave back the gains as soon as the 50 day EMA was tested. Because of this, it makes quite a bit of sense that the market would continue to reach towards the 0.6750 level as it is essentially “fair value” for the reset consolidation since July.
The market continues to see a lot of choppiness in general, because quite frankly there isn’t any news to drive the markets in one direction or the other. As long as that’s the case, it’s likely that the market will continue to see resistance at the 50 day EMA with a significant support level at the 0.67 level.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 0.68.
The projected upper bound is: 0.69.
The projected lower bound is: 0.67.
The projected closing price is: 0.68.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 25 white candles and 24 black candles for a net of 1 white candles.
Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.
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.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 105.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a buy 7 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 buy 2 period(s) ago.
