Australian Dollar: USD/AUD (AUD=X) support near the 0.7050 level
The Australian dollar has pulled back a bit during the trading session on Wednesday, testing the 50 day EMA. Quite frankly, if we can break down below the hammers from the previous two sessions, we could break down a bit further, something that I’m actually hoping to see. This is because I see so much support near the 0.7050 level that extends all the way down to the 0.68 level that I would view that as potential value in a currency that is currently testing a major bottom on the monthly charts.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 0.73.
The projected lower bound is: 0.70.
The projected closing price is: 0.71.
A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 3 black candles for a net of 3 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 26 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 3 white candles.
