AUD/USD: The pair could be shaping up for another corrective recovery following a test and hold of its 2010 low at 0.8069 on Tuesday.

With a bid tone now seen, recovery higher should aim at the 0.8356 level, its May 19 low, at first with a break setting the stage for more upside towards the 0.8467 level, its May 20 low. Further out, resistance resides at the 0.8500 level and then the 0.8576 level.

A combination of this zone, if tested, should reverse roles and provide resistance thus turning the pair back lower again in line with its broader medium-term weakness. Alternatively, the risk to our recovery view will be a break below the 0.8069/65 levels. This will pave the way for run at the 0.7800 level, its psycho level followed by the 0.7704/00 level, it's .50. Fib Ret(0.6008 - 0.9404 rally) and even lower.

Overall, the pair remains broadly biased to the downside but its rejection of lower prices suggests a corrective recovery could be developing.
