This means that even a break below a channel wouldn’t be strong enough to change our long-term outlook to bearish, and even may be a good time to go bullish on AUD/USD at the lower pivot.

Trading Strategy

Bullish Scenario

Look for a bullish reversal signal at the lower pivot or if the pair fails to break the Ichimoku cloud. Target 0.78 and 0.8150 in extension depending on your risk tolerance.

The long term bullish resistance level is set at 0.8450.

Bearish Scenario

A break below the Ichimoku cloud could change our outlook to bearish. Targets are set at 0.7250 and 0.6950.

Economic Calendar


We are certainly expecting a more quiet day today as we don’t have major marketing moving evens on the calendar. During the New York session we are expecting the 3 and 6 month bill Auctions 3:30 PM GMT. Investors monitor the yield volatility and compare the average rate at auction to the rate at previous auctions of the same security as an indicator of the government debt situation., which could ultimately impact the USD strength.
