Short term Aussie Dollar

February 22, 2012

FOREX

I have a few rules when it comes to trading and one of them is “be wary of Monday morning Asian moves” this is especially so if it is accompanied by a US holiday.

So it’s no surprise that Wednesday morning Australian open looks very different to yesterday when the US had not traded yet this week.

In many was its just the old “buy the rumor – sell the fact” trading axiom I was taught back in the late 80’s. Sometimes axioms are just axioms for a reason.

Which brings me to this mornings quick piece on the Aussie Dollar which looks very close to support as you can see in the chart from FXPro below.

I’ve been saying for a while I think the risk rally is mature and we’ve been trading sideways for a week or so now. A break below 1.0629 is the key trigger for the Aussie Dollar short term and maybe other markets.

I still reckon markets need a pause whether it’s time or price time will tell.

Have a great day.
