AUSSIE
AUSSIE: The AUD has stuck to tight ranges, last trading ever so slightly softer
vs. USD at ~0.7780. AUDUSD has struggled with the 21-DMA ($0.7833) this week &
the rejection ahead of $0.7842 leaves the pair looking a little heavy. Bears
look for a close < 0.7753 to ease bullish pressure. The 0.7842 resistance is now
key. Bulls now need a close > to hint at a move back to 0.7989.
- AUDJPY is higher but this is a function of JPY weakness. AUDJPY 2018 lows
lacked follow through this week leaving a double daily bottom in place with the
Bollinger base & O/S daily studies key concerns. Topside follow through is a
little lacking with bulls still needing a close above 83.32 to gain breathing
room & above 84.89 to target key DMAs clustered 86.29-59. Bears now need a close
below 82.03 to gain breathing room.
- AUDNZD has been muted, last trading at ~1.0715. The topside failure last week
ahead of the 55-WMA and key DMAs resulted in an aggressive sell-off and
immediate focus back on 2018 lows. Bears look for a close below 1.0650 to add
weight to the case for a test of 1.0458-91 where the LT rising TL off 2015 lows
is noted. Bulls still need a close above 1.0776.
