Australian Dollar Analysis and Talking Points

  • Australian Dollar to Find Support on Dips
  • IG Client Sentiment Remains Bullish for the Aussie

Pound To Australian Dollar Exchange Rate Forecast: GBP/AUD Tilts Lower To  Test 1.77

Australian Dollar to Find Support on Dips

The Australian Dollar goes from strength to strength as firmer commodity prices underpins. This has somewhat shielded the currency from the recent geopolitical tensions and the increased hawkishness from the Federal Reserve. What’s more, with Australia experiencing a strong balance of payment position, supported by record trade surpluses, this further adds to support for the currency. As such, the outlook for the Aussie remains bullish where dips will likely to find support. This will be particularly the case given that the RBA appears to be further behind the curve on the inflation front relative to its counterparts. With the AUDUSD breaking above the 0.7500 handle, eyes are geared towards a test of 0.7800 in the medium term.

IG Client Sentiment: AUD/USD

Data shows 35.59% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.81 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 0.72% higher than yesterday and 15.99% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.35% higher than yesterday and 23.90% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests AUD/USD prices may continue to rise.

Traders are further net-short than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger AUD/USD-bullish contrarian trading bias.

    • Ontology is a high-performance, open-source blockchain that aims to revolutionize the way we approach digital identities, data sharing, and trust in the digital realm. One of the standout features of Ontology is its dual-token model, which separates the roles of ONT and ONG. While ONT serves as the staking tool for nodes and governance, ONG operates as the value-anchoring utility token for on-chain applications and transactions. This innovative approach mitigates the risk of turbulent fluctuations in the native asset value, ensuring a stable and efficient ecosystem. The ONG listing on Bitget is particularly exciting for several reasons. Firstly, it aligns with Ontology's recent announcement of a $10 million fund aimed at fueling the innovation and adoption of Decentralized Identity (DID) through the ONT and ONG tokens. This initiative underscores the project's commitment to empowering, educating, and evolving its ecosystem in exciting new ways.
