The Aussie Dollar broke support at $0.96 against the greenback before retracing, the long tail indicating buying pressure. Expect a weak bear rally to test resistance at parity before another decline breaches primary support, offering a target of $0.90*.
* Target calculation: 0.96 – ( 1.02 – 0.96 ) = 0.90
The euro has so far respected primary support at $1.27. Breakout above resistance at $1.30 would suggest a primary up-trend; confirmed if the euro follows through above $1.32. Breach of support is unlikely, but would offer a target of $1.20/$1.22*.
* Target calculation: 1.27 – ( 1.32 – 1.27 ) = 1.22
The greenback retreated sharply against the yen as Japanese investors repatriate offshore bond and stock investments — see Mrs Watanabe Brings Home the Bacon. But the longer term trend is unchanged. Respect of support at ¥100 would signal a fresh primary advance. Breach of the long-term declining trendline indicates the 30-year secular bear trend is over. Long-term target for the advance is the 2007 high at ¥125*.
* Target calculation: 100 – ( 100 – 75 ) = 125
