Australian Dollar Trends to Persist in 3Q 2022: Top Trading Opportunities

Recommended Posts

AUD/USD appeared to be on track to test the yearly low (0.6829) after failing to push above the 50-Week SMA (0.7243), but the exchange rate may consolidate over the near-term as long as it defends the June low (0.6850).

As a result, AUD/USD may face range bound conditions as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) looks to further normalize monetary policy over the coming months. The exchange rate may attempt to retrace the decline from the June high (0.7283) as Governor Philip Lowe and Co. are “committed to doing what is necessary to ensure that inflation in Australia returns to target over time.”

However, AUD/USD may ultimately track the negative slope in the 50-Week SMA (0.7243) as the Federal Reserve endorses a restrictive policy. The exchange rate may continue to give back the advance from 2020 as Chair Jerome Powell & Co. forecast a steeper path for the Fed Funds rate.

AUD/USD may consolidate over the near-term as it defends the June low (0.6850), but the exchange rate may trade to fresh yearly lows in the second half of 2022 with the FOMC on track to deliver a series of 75bp rate hikes over the coming months.

AUD/JPY consolidates after trading to a fresh yearly high (96.88) in June, and the exchange rate may continue to appreciate in the second half of 2022 as the Bank of Japan (BoJ) sticks to the Quantitative and Qualitative Easing program with Yield Curve Control.

As a result, AUD/JPY may stage further attempts to test the May 2015 high (97.30) as Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) normalizes monetary policy. A move above 70 in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is likely to be accompanied by a rise in the exchange rate like the price action seen earlier this year.

However, AUD/JPY may face a larger correction if the RSI diverges with price and fails to push into overbought territory. Failure to defend the June low (91.97) may push the exchange rate towards the May low (87.30) as the bullish momentum abates.

    • Here we go!!! Gold making record highs 🚀🚀🚀 The level to watch going forward is 2133 👀, which is the weekly cyclical resistance. We need a close (preferably 1%) above this level at the end of the week before moving any higher. High volatility is to be expected throughout December. 🤑

Some stocks will make new highs, and some won’t, but they will still have the same wave count and I will explain this in today’s video. That said there are stocks like Tesla that are different, however they will move the same on an intraday basis, just with different Elliott wave counts.

    • Thanks. A really interesting video and some interesting statistics and analysis. I haven't the time to go back and analyse whether a strong November increases the chance of there not being a Santa rally, although one of the slides highlights that the negative Santa Rally years were tied with poor November returns for the market such as 2000, 2008 etc which seems a contradiction.  Would I short and back against it happening? When it occurs in over 80% of years... absolutely not.  The Santa Rally – Christmas Growth in the Stock Market. (moneysandi.com)
