The Aussie Dollar recovered above the former primary support level at $1.04, testing resistance at $1.06. Breakout would indicate an advance to $1.10. But there are several question-marks over the latest advance. First, the rally has accompanied a similar recovery on the ASX 200 (to test resistance at 4500). If resistance holds, as expected, the AUD is likely to retreat.
* Target calculation: 1.04 – ( 1.10 – 1.04 ) = 0.98
Second, the CRB Commodities Index confirmed a primary down-trend with a sharp fall below 335. The primary trend is unlikely to reverse at this stage and another down-swing would drag the Aussie Dollar lower.
* Target calculation: 330 – ( 350 – 330 ) = 310
