AUD embraces a turbulent July, what comes next?

Hebe Chen | Market Analyst, Melbourne | Publication date: Wednesday 19 July 2023 

The Australian dollar has experienced a "fire and ice" July, with the exchange rate of AUD/USD soaring nearly 4% in the first two weeks of the month and then turning decisively south since the 14th of July. Will the downtrend continue to the end of the month, or is there a chance to see a rebound soon?

What happened to AUD/USD

July has been a data-and-event-heavy month for the AUD/USD pair.

The first event that hit the Australian dollar was the RBA's decision to pause rates in the July interest rate meeting. Following the announcement, the AUD dipped for two consecutive days. However, shortly thereafter, cooler-than-expected inflation data in the United States challenged the strength of the US dollar and shifted support towards the Australian dollar, pushing the exchange rate towards 0.69.

Towards the mid-point of the month, on July 14th, a significant turnaround occurred for the AUD/USD pair. The Australian government announced a new RBA governor, replacing the current RBA boss Philip Lowe, who had led the RBA to raise interest rates 11 times since May 2022. As a result, the market forecasted that this may signify a new chapter for the RBA's policy cycle, with an increased likelihood of fewer rate hikes.

Furthermore, the latest economic data from China placed additional pressure on the AUD/USD pair. As a commodity currency, any signs of a slowdown in China's economic recovery will inevitably impact the demand for Australia's exports, leading to a weaker Australian dollar. As of Wednesday (July 19th), the Australian dollar has been declining for five consecutive days.

AUD/USD: what are the key challenges in store?

In fact, the volatility of the Australian dollar is likely far from over.

On Thursday, July 20th, Australia will release its unemployment rate for June. Currently, market expectations are that Australia's unemployment rate will remain at a historic low of 3.6%, indicating a sustained tight labor market. The incoming new governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia has previously stated that to maintain a sustainable and reasonable inflation rate, the unemployment rate ideally should be around 4.5%. In other words, the current unemployment rate poses a significant uncertainty to the still elevated inflation.

Additionally, even more impactful data will come in the last week of July. On July 26th, Australia will release the inflation rate for the second quarter, with market expectations at 6.3%. Although it shows a significant decrease compared to the previous quarter's 7%, Australia is likely to become one of the developed countries with the highest inflation rates. Therefore, we cannot rule out the possibility of the Reserve Bank of Australia persisting with a rate hike in August under the pressure of this trend, which could potentially lead to a strong recovery of the Australian dollar in late July.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis

Turning to the daily chart for AUD/USD, after failing to break through the key 0.69 level on July 14th, a clear double-top pattern has formed completely. The neckline of this double-top pattern aligns perfectly with the uptrend line since early June.

Currently, the AUD/USD pair is being supported at the level of 0.68, which used to be a significant resistance level from April to June this year. If the price continues to drop below this level, it may likely retest the 200-day moving average as a key support and potentially reverse the medium-term trend if moving further down.

However, from a longer term perspective, only a breach below this month-long trendline can we confirm a bear reversal for the pair.

    • As a crypto trader mastering the art of trade is quite a torturous journey; one that comes with patience and perseverance especially with the changes in regulatory requirements. As you know crypto trading requires a trader to carefully choose a secure and reputable exchange, one that can provide instructive charts that contains basic TA tools (those you can primarily find on Binance and Bitget) 
    • FTSE 100 at one-year high and DAX rallies, while S&P 500 keeps struggling European indices have outpaced their US counterparts in recent days, as the S&P 500 continues to find it hard to keep rallying. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 27 September 2023 11:41 FTSE 100 Yesterday’s push opened the door to fresh post-pandemic highs and puts the buyers firmly back on top. Expectations of a potential turn lower back towards 7200 and further down have been cancelled out, with the index now targeting 7500 and 7650 to the upside. Source: ProRealTime DAX Thursday saw the index recoup lost ground and make a new record high, and with this now achieved bullish momentum will likely carry the price to fresh highs. There is still no sign of a pullback, and with the index at a new higher high even a drop back towards 15,800 would still be more of a potential buying opportunity. Source: ProRealTime S&P 500 By contrast a small retracement continues here, with the index unable to rally back to previous highs as yet. Declines continue to target 4550 as an initial area of support. A recovery back above 4675 could easily see the buyers take control once again. Source: ProRealTime
    • Brent crude oil, natural gas prices rise while gold drops to one-month low Outlook on Brent crude oil, gold and natural gas as the US dollar continues to appreciate. Source: Bloomberg  Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 27 September 2023 11:27 Brent crude oil climbs on supply tightness The price of Brent crude oil resumed its ascent as concerns about supply tightness heading into the winter gripped markets with last week’s ten-month high at $94.97 being back in sight. Immediate resistance lurks around last Tuesday’s $93.32 low. Support below Wednesday’s intraday low at $92.60 can be found around last Thursday’s $91.37 trough. Further down sits more important support between the $90.97 early September high and Tuesday’s $90.49 low. Source: ProRealTime Gold drops to one-month low Gold’s descent from last week’s $1,947 per troy ounce high accompanied by a rising US dollar has taken it to a one-month low towards the $1,893 June low. Further down sits the August low at $1,885 which may also be reached over the coming days. Minor resistance above the mid-September low at $1,901 can be found around the 6 September low at $1,916. Source: ProRealTime Natural gas prices stabilize above support On Tuesday US natural gas futures revisited their recent low at $2.791 but managed to bounce off it with this week’s high at $2.924 being in focus as supply tightness pushes price up. A rise above $2.924 would engage the psychological $3.000 region and last week’s high at $3.021. Further up sits the August peak at $3.050. A currently unexpected slip through last week’s low at $2.791 could lead to the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $2.727 being reached. Source: ProRealTime
