    just wanted to check how aud is against usd in the last months.
    well, the scenario is quite clear: medium term is still bearish and short term too.
    In these days the pair is testing short term trendline (black one) for the third time, after a v-shape pattern. Moreover, the currency is facing an important area across 0,73-0,74: in fact, it has been paused a lot of times.
    Maybe, a strong break of the short term trendline will let the pair run over to 0,74-0,7450 area where the medium term trendline is running.
    As usual, the market will be the final judge...

    cheers

    AUD/USD - up, down, turn it around?

    What are peoples opinions on the AUD against the USD in the next few months? Some are saying a low of .50-.55 while others believe it will bounce back to .70-.75?

    I hope it bounces back. :)

    Pure random guess.....

    The AUD will continue to diminish for 6 months to say 57c....then gradually move up to over the next few years, eventually overtaking gaining parity on the back of the next China based commodity price boom.

    Never really paid much attention to currencies before as I don't trade fx, but looking at currency futures, interesting to see how the Euro, British Pound and Aussie seems to be in sync, and opposite with the Yen and US.

    Good if planning a trip to Europe, perhaps, not so good if planning a trip to either Japan or the US. Perhaps not a trading or business perspective, but heck there is more to life.

    Re: AUD/USD - up, down, turn it around?

    Here's one that The Age is quoting. Probably the same muppet who said that the AUD would hit parity with the USD sometime next year.


    'The currency has dropped 31% since reaching a 25-year high of 98.49 US cents on July 16, sliding as prices of crude oil, gold and nickel declined. It reached 47.75 cents in April 2001, the lowest since it started trading freely in 1983.


    "I can see it certainly dropping quite sharply from here," Carlin Doyle, a London-based currency strategist at State Street Global Markets said. The Australian dollar could fall "below the 40 cent level and I can see that happening in the next year or so," he added.'

    The AUD/USD has been clobbered below 0.6750 in early Sydney by a large European bank. There isn"t any news to speak of, but the market is especially thin ahead of the end of month London fix later today when massive amounts in thin markets are going to have to change hands. The talk is that there will be very large USD buying flows against the EUR and AUD at the fix as portfolio managers rebalance for month-end.
    The key event today for the AUD and all of the asset markets will be the BOJ decision later today. The market expects the BOJ to ease 25 BPS to 0.25% and if they don"t it would be poorly received by equity markets and put the AUD under heavy pressure again. If they do ease it should underpin equities and carry trade currencies even though the London Fix is likely to discourage any aggressive buying.

    Cheers

    I wonder how rebalancing works. I mean, if everyone waits until the very last day to rebalance, prices will certainly be unfavourable. If I were a portfolio manager I would have completed most of the rebalancing by now.

    Re: AUD/USD - up, down, turn it around?

    Well, for what it's worth, There's a good morning star on the AUD/USD.

    Bottoms in! :hide:

    I'm tipping .77 pretty soon to fill that gap.

    I don't know if anyone noticed, but there was a little morning star that kicked off the reversal of the USDX higher a few months ago too.
