Forex Technical Update
AUD/USD 1H Chart 11:15PM PM EDT 7/9/2012
The AUD/USD may have been crawling above the declining trendline in July, seen in the 1H chart, but the breakout was faded sharply during the 7/10 Asian session, during 10:00PM-11:00PM EDT. There are some technical clues here that suggest bearish continuation.
Another bearish signal is the negative reversal signal where the price high is lower, but the RSI high is higher. This suggests there is further bearish momentum for at least another swing in this short-term time-frame.
Finally, the fact that it tagged the 200-hour SMA at about 1.0210 and came back below 1.02 suggest the market can hold price below its recent mean and therefore the bias is still bearish.
A break below these support factors opens up the 1.0 parity level.
