Australian Greenback Value Chart – AUD/USD Weekly

Australian Dollar Price Chart - AUD/USD Weekly - Aussie Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast

Chart Ready by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; AUD/USD on Tradingview

Notes: In final month’s Australian Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we famous that AUD/USD had responded to confluence uptrend resistance and to, “be looking out for draw back exhaustion forward of 7385 IF worth is certainly heading greater with a weekly shut above 7835 needed to mark resumption of the broader uptrend.” Aussie registered a low 7563 into the February open earlier than reversing sharply greater with the advance now trying to mark a fourth consecutive week. Observe that weekly momentum is now probing multi-month highs into overbought territory and whereas the broader focus stays weighted to the topside, the fast advance could also be weak to exhaustion into the shut of the month.

Preliminary weekly resistance stands on the higher parallel (presently close to ~8020s) backed by the 2018 high-week shut / 2017 excessive at 8108/25 – look for a bigger response there IF reached. Weekly support rests at 7801 backed by the target 2021 yearly open at 7701. Finally, a break / shut under the yearly opening-range lows at 7563 could be wanted to recommend a extra important reversal is underway.

Backside line: The Australian Greenback breakout retains the broader focus greater in worth however the advance could also be weak into the shut of the month as weekly momentum stretches into multi-year highs. From a buying and selling standpoint, look to cut back long-exposure / elevate protecting stops on a stretch in direction of the higher parallel – the chance stays for a pullback throughout the confines of the broader uptrend. Losses must be restricted to the yearly open IF worth is certainly heading greater. As all the time, keep nimble into the shut of the month. I’ll publish an up to date Australian Dollar Price Outlook as soon as we get additional readability on the near-term AUD/USD technical commerce ranges.
