TradeOutLoud’s favorite trade of the week:
AUD/USD double bias, short term long bias and long term short bias
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) kept rates unchanged at 2.5% at the September 3rd policy meeting. The positive numbers from Building approvals and GDP along with recent imporvements in China there are less odds that there will be a rate cut by the end of this year.
We have a long / short bias on this currency trade, seeing more buying / selling pressure from it’s technical charts, here is what we see in the technical levels:
On the Daily chart we are in a strong downtrend that has initiated with a breakdown of support last May. Because of the this week’s positive numbers the AUD/USD popped over the descending resistance trend line challenging the previous pivot high set back at the beginning of August. There is support from which this currency pair bounces at 0.8900 area and on Friday it ran into 0.9215 resistance area from a double top formation from early August, thus forming a triple top as of Friday September 6, 2013.
