AUDUSD Buyers Need a Close Above 0.6920 to Keep the Rally Alive


The AUDUSD reached a key resistance area on Thursday.

I first wrote about this descending channel that extends from the December 2018 high on July 24.

At the time, we were trading the breakdown below 0.6960 with a target of 0.6750.

I also wrote about the potential for a higher AUDUSD in the October 5 Saturday Forex forecast.

Now that the pair is trading just below resistance, you might think that now is a good time to sell.

However, I’m not interested in selling AUDUSD at the moment.

While we could see a short-term move lower, October’s bullish engulfing candle hints at a push higher.

Descending channel on the AUDUSD weekly time frame

The AUDUSD is also above the 0.6860/80 area I pointed out on October 21.

Notice how buyers have stepped in at 0.6880 over the last 48 hours.

That said, it’s still going to take a daily close above the channel top near 0.6920 to keep the rally alive.

If buyers can secure a close above that 0.6920 region, we could see the Australian dollar trend higher toward 0.7030.

It’s difficult to see on the daily time frame, but a view of the weekly chart shows how the 0.7030 area has influenced the AUDUSD since October 2018.

The 0.7030 level is also the 50% retracement of the descending channel that began last December.

Alternatively, a daily close below 0.6860/80 could trigger a move lower, perhaps into the next key support at 0.6810.

Not to mention, if you pull a fib off the weekly chart from the cycle high on 7-14-19 candle and the low 9-29-19 candle you’ll see current candle has now probed the 61% fib level and pulled off slightly. Not a buy yet, and not a sell yet either, so we patiently wait on this one.
