Aussie dollar recovery is tentative

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.

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.

  1. Based on the current world data I disagree with the dollar being shakey as Asia comes around we should see the AUD hold it’s own in the current market dispite the worries about USD as Asia strengthens exports from AUSSIE .

    1. Hi Ben, The AUD is definitely not a safe haven currency when compared to JPY or CHF. It is in a primary down-trend against the CHF and threatens to go the same way with the yen. Regards, Colin
