AUDUSD Technical Analysis

After we repeatedly highlighted AUD should be should on every opportunity in the Forex market after missing the monthly entry to join the downtrend, there appears to be room for recovery. At this stage we will relate the anticipated gains in AUD as profit realization ahead of the end of 2014. What we also find attractive is another technical possibility for moderate gains in crude oil following the heavy losses that we have also forecasted.

AUDUSD Technical Strategy, 12 December, 2014

AUDUSD Monthly Chart 12/12/14

The monthly chart shows the top Head-And-Shoulders (H&S) that was confirmed upon a break below the neckline at the monthly close, which signalled the selling may continue.  The progress of top H&S is partial gains that will paint higher highs and lower lows .On most occasions, the corrective gains will continue until the right-hand shoulder resistance or held by the former neckline. We are perfectly aware the next monthly support is at 0.8022 but based on our experience, the expected gains do not have reach the support line before correcting higher. In order to find an entry we must turn to the intraday time frames.

After a deep exploration we may conclude there is no decisive intraday entry in AUDUSD. aside the hourly support line, which in fact turn into reversed H&S.

If our trading strategy meets out expectations, the gains are likely to be seen as early as next week (weekly close). We choose to enter at current price as there moderate gains in today’s session cannot be overruled. We are however expecting to profit by the beginning of next week. The strategy is completely technical and has no fundamental strings attached to it aside end of year profit realization. If you are new to the market, it means traders have sold AUD earlier this year will close their trades to book profits, which may create strong gains in AUD pairs and crosses.
