AUDUSD Technical Analysis
We have recently issued 2 trades alerts, long NZDUSD and long XAU/USD based on our technical models. As we have clarified in our 2014 Trading Opportunities, AUDUSD has been classified as a long trade based on the monthly chart. Recent lows provide a decent entry to execute long trades in the Foreign Exchange market.
Before diving into the technical end of our tactical entry into the Australian Dollar (AUD), we believe the gains will come as a result of the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) actions to boost to contracting economy. We have recently witnessed spikes in AUD and NZD pairs and crosses as the PBOC announced it will inject the top banks with Y500 billion, sending the commodity currencies higher along with gold. Recent weakness noted in today’s session across the markers were as a result of investors pricing in the probability of a slowdown when the HSBC Manufacturing Consumer Price Index (PMI) will be published in the early hours of Tuesday morning. We have experienced certain volatility in our trades performance, which is completely natural after successful months. We are sticking to our technical models as they have served as well in the past several years.

We also have a technical entry to short GBPAUD however, we are already long NZDUSD, XAU/USD and now AUDUSD. We do not wish to overexpose ourselves to the China’s repercussions on the Forex market and believe holding the above trades is sufficient.
