AUD-USD Looks Set To Test 2009 High

The Australian dollar could be building towards a test of its April high vs. the dollar.

By Mohammed Isah of

AUD-USD: With a third week of gains driving the pair through the 0.9221 level, its August 6 high the past week, further recovery is now envisaged towards its April 21 high at 0.9337.

AUD-USD has been sustaining its bull pressure started from the 0.8770 level in late August high and now looks to violate the 0.9337 level thereby turning the focus towards its 2009 high at 0.9404.

An eventual clearance of there will target the 0.9500 level, its psycho level. Its weekly RSI is bullish and pointing higher supporting this view.

Alternatively, the 0.9221 level, its August 6 high will come in as support on any pullback.

We expect a cap at this level to turn the pair higher again.

However, if that level fails, bear pressure will develop towards the 0.9078 level with a clearance of there targeting the 0.8770 level and then the 0.8736 level.

Overall, short term risk remains to the upside as the pair looks to recapture its major resistance at 0.9404.
