AUD/USD: general review

Sorting by categories


Current trend

Having reached two-year lows at the end of last week, the instrument moved to growth and is currently trading near the psychological level of 0.7200.

Despite the low level of consumer confidence in Australia, AUD strengthened after the US offered to begin a new round of negotiations on trade tariffs with the PRC.

In addition, USD was under pressure from yesterday’s negative data on US inflation. In August, the Consumer Price Index fell from 2.9% YoY to 2.7% YoY (minimum since April), and the Base Consumer Price Index rose from 2.4% to 2.2% (the worst indicator since May). Market participants feared that poor inflation data, along with pressure from President Trump's administration and trade tensions, could force FOMC members to hold only one interest rate increase instead of the two planned ones.

Today, the publication of data on retail sales in the US is expected at 14:30 (GMT+2), as well as the data on industrial production (15:15 (GMT+2)).

Support and resistance

On the H4 chart, the instrument is traded in the upper part of Bollinger Bands, trying to consolidate above the psychological level of 0.7200. The indicator is directed upwards and the price range has widened, which indicates the continuation of the uptrend. MACD histogram is in the positive zone, keeping a strong buy signal. Stochastic does not give clear signal for entering the market.

Resistance levels: 0.7234, 0.7266, 0.7308, 0.7345, 0.7987.

Support levels: 0.7195, 0.7146, 0.7110, 0.7076.
