Will upcoming high tier occasions from Australia and the U.S. maintain the momentum going?
AUD/USD Upside Breakout or Fakeout?
Because the begin of October, the Aussie has been not solely holding its personal, however outperforming in opposition to the opposite main currencies, regardless of knowledge displaying the financial restoration could also be topping out in the mean time. It’s doable that foreign exchange merchants could also be focusing extra on covid developments, together with increased vaccination rates and easing of restrictions, that might seemingly make the present droop in knowledge non permanent and convey again financial coverage tightening hypothesis.
If that’s the case, then the current rally in AUD/USD could proceed to have legs, particularly from technical merchants who could also be leaping in after the pair simply broke by the neckline of the inverted head-and-shoulders sample marked on the 4 hour chart above.
However this week, we’ve bought high tier financial updates approaching the forex economic calendar from each Australia and the U.S. that will shift sentiment on the pair short-term. Most notable among the many bunch are the monthly U.S. CPI update, FOMC meeting minutes and the latest Australian employment update. Expectations are for one more tick increased in U.S. inflation, the Fed minutes will seemingly present tapering is coming in 2021, and that Australian employment will disappoint. If that is so, then that upside breakout within the chart above may even see resistance.
In that state of affairs, we’ll be waiting for a retest of that damaged neckline for potential shopping for assist, if we don’t see a disastrous Australian jobs replace and U.S. CPI coming in at or beneath expectations. If retested and bullish reversal patterns type there, that would attract each technical and basic patrons to maintain the brand new uptrend going.
If the upcoming occasions play out in every other manner, then we’ll keep in watch mode to see how the markets react, notably if we see a manner increased CPI learn from the U.S. and/or a better-than-expected flip in Australian jobs knowledge.
What do you guys assume? Is that an inverted head-and-shoulders sample marked on the chart and if that’s the case, is that an actual neckline break?
