The AUD once again fell across the board after the RBA cut its benchmark rate by 0.25% to 2.75%. This was not officially expected, but speculators were already looking lower ahead of the decision based on latest poor economic data in Australia. Technicals were also pointing for weaker AUD and once again they were right, fundamentals just a catalyst. AUDUSD is looking bearish now on the intra-day basis with possible extension down to 1.0150 as day progresses, but 1.0220/50 must not be…Continue

AUDUSD reversed perfectly lower from 1.0380/1.0400 resistance region that we have been focusing on last week with our members. Notice that market made a very sharp fall from that level, clearly in impulsive fashion through the lower line of a corrective channel that has been tested as a resistance on Friday after the NFP report. We believe that was just a sharp corrective retracement, labeled as wave (ii) that is part of incomplete bearish cycles. With that said, we think that AUDUSD will…Continue
AUDUSD reversed perfectly lower from 1.0380/1.0400 resistance region that I have been focusing on few days back.

Thats a very nice signal for a continuation of a larger trend which is clearly bearish on AUDUSD from early April high. Ideally, pair is now moving into a third wave that could extend even down to 1.0100. Any near-term bounce should…Continue

In contrast, the Euro is apt to dip as a similar factory report for the Euro Zone contracted more than expected and as labor reports due today are estimated to come in weak.

Meanwhile, a slight decline in the today’s Flash Manufacturing PMI from the US is believed to suggest that cautious moods among US businesses and the slowing global economy are threatening to derail the US economic recovery.
