While AUD USD seems to have clearly broken out of it's daily down trend, it immediately ran in to trouble with the 100 EMA (blue line) twice. As long as we remain below the 100 day EMA we seems headed down to test the bottom of that band near the W2 around 1.001 and possibly lower toward the bottom band of the 200 day EMA (dotted red line)…Continue

EURUSD: With EUR selling off and reversing its Thursday gains, the risk is for the pair to decline further towards the 1.3033/03 levels. We may see price hesitation at this level but if taken out, further declines should target the 1.2975 level where a violation will call for a run at the 1.2879 level, its Jan 23’2011 low. Its daily RSI is bearish and pointing lower supporting this view. On the other hand, to annul its present downside pressure, EUR will have to break and hold above the…

But while the figure is relatively impressive, the monthly average for the year still remains weak and this is likely to bring a rise in the unemployment figures in…Continue

Euro dollar continues sliding lower after hitting high resistance yesterday. The relatively weak Chinese GDP weighs on the common currency, as global demand is essential for European growth. A busy day in the US closes the week, including QE3 related inflation figures and a speech by Ben Bernanke just before markets unwind. Will Bernanke hurt the dollar on Friday the 13th?
