After hitting a multiyear low just above 0.5500 on March 19, AUD/USD has formed a higher low in the 0.5720 area.
AUD/USD: bears are still in charge
SELL 0.6940; TP 0.6900; SL 0.6955
Last week we recommended selling AUD/USD as it reached the resistance of the long-term downtrend. The indeed turned out to be correct. The pair formed a “double top” pattern at the resistance line that has been in place since the start of 2018. As bears make it pierce more levels on the downside, we get the new sell target - 0.6900. If the comments of the Fed’s chair Powell are less dovish this week, there will be potential for the further decline to 0.6830 (June low).
GBP/USD retraced more than 78.6% Fibonacci of the 2019 advance. Last week was the worst for the pair since the Brexit referendum.
CAD/JPY recovered last week to the 78.00 area (38.2% Fibonacci of the February-March decline), but then turned down again getting back below the 50-period MA on the H4.
