The Australian Dollar plunged more than 2% off the weekly highs with AUD/USD reversing sharply from key technical resistance levels. The reversal threatens a deeper correction in the days ahead and a pullback may offer more favorable opportunities closer to trend support. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the AUD/USD weekly price chart. Review my latest Weekly Strategy Webinar for an in-depth breakdown of this Aussie technical setup and more.

AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR PRICE CHART – AUD/USD WEEKLY

Australian Dollar Price Chart - AUD/USD Weekly - Aussie Trade Outlook - AUDUSD Technical Forecast

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; AUD/USD on Tradingview

Notes: In last month’s AUD/USD Technical Forecast we note that, “A six-week recovery in the Australian Dollar has reversed off long-term downtrend resistance. The immediate focus is on this turn lower with an exhaustion-low ahead of 7149 needed to keep the recovery viable.” That recovery was short-lived with price registering a low at 7165 before reversing sharply higher. The advance ripped through resistance targets at 7531 and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the 2021 decline (7610) before reversing sharply lower- Is a near-term high in place?

Key support rests at a major technical confluence around 7385/96- a region now defined by the May 2017 low-week close, the 52-week moving average and the 38.2% retracement of the year-to-date range. A break below this threshold would threaten an accelerated decline towards the 61.8% retracement / objective yearly open at 7232/70. Weekly resistance objectives are unchanged at 7531, 7610 and the 2021 high-week close at 7705- look for a larger reaction there IF reached.

Bottom line: The Australian Dollar breakout may be vulnerable to near-term exhaustion here and we’re on the lookout for an exhaustion low closer to trend support. From a trading standpoint, losses should be limited to 7385 for the long-bias to remain viable with a weekly close above 7610 needed to mark resumption of the yearly uptrend. Review my latest Australian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the near-term AUD/USD technical trade levels.

AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR TRADER SENTIMENT – AUD/USD PRICE CHART

Australian Dollar Trader Sentiment - AUD/USD Price Chart - Aussie Retail Positioning - AUDUSD Technical Outlook

  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-short AUD/USD - the ratio stands at -1.18 (45.79% of traders are long) – typically neutral reading
  • Long positions are 16.49% higher than yesterday and 29.44% higher from last week
  • Short positions are16.71% lower than yesterday and 23.87% lower 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. Yet traders are less net-short than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current AUD/USD price trend may soon reverse lower despite the fact traders remain net-short.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter Trend Mode - Corrective Structure -Zigzag for wave (B) Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A is still in play Details -  As it appears the decline from 720’4 will most likely continue lower, we have adjusted the previous count. Price is now very likely in wave A of (B) against the 523’6 low. Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Since late May, wheat has declined over 14% from 720, indicating that the commodity has retraced approximately half of the impulse rally that occurred between March 11th and May 28th. In the medium term, the move from March 11th remains a positive correction of the long-term bearish trend that spanned from March 2022 to March 2024—a two-year trend.   Daily Chart Analysis: On the daily chart, wheat completed a bearish impulse wave from March 2022 at 523’6 in March 2024. Following this trend, a corrective phase was anticipated in the opposite direction. The impulse reaction that concluded wave (A) at the May 2024 peak is part of this larger bullish correction. Given that wave (A) is an impulse, we can expect at least a zigzag structure or possibly a double zigzag if the bullish correction extends over several months. Following the path of least resistance, a simple zigzag structure—wave (A)-(B)-(C)—is highly probable. Currently, the price is correcting wave (A) downwards in wave (B). Provided that the ongoing decline stays above 523’6, an extension higher is expected. However, wave (B) does not appear to be finished yet, as evident from the H4 chart.   H4 Chart Analysis: On the H4 chart, the price seems to be in wave A of (B), which is evolving into an impulse structure. We anticipate a typical zigzag structure for wave (B). The invalidation level at 523’6 should not be breached. If it is, the long-term bearish trend from March 2022 will likely resume, confirming that the bullish correction from March 2024 has concluded.   Summary: Wheat has seen a significant decline since late May, retracing half of its recent impulse rally. The medium-term trend from March 11th remains a positive correction within the context of a long-term bearish trend that lasted two years. On the daily chart, the completion of the bearish impulse wave in March 2024 was followed by a bullish correction, which is currently in wave (B) of a zigzag structure. The H4 chart suggests that wave A of (B) is forming an impulse structure, with expectations of a typical zigzag correction.   Traders should monitor the key level of 523’6. If this level holds, the bullish correction is likely to continue with a potential extension higher. However, a breach below 523’6 would invalidate this scenario, signaling a continuation of the long-term bearish trend.  Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
