AUD/USD – Monitoring Consolidation for Breakout(0)
AUD/USD Daily Char
The AUD/USD is merging following a crack in the support at 0.9860, which dates back to December 2011. The trend is still bearish with an indication of lower highs and lower lows. In the meantime, the force has been unrelenting, replicated by the RSI analysis remaining beneath 60 and labeling 30 all through AUD/USD’s May-turn down.
As the week kicks off, the AUD/USD is fundamentally merging within 0.98 and 0.9880 levels, even though price movement seems to be in a small congestion. The RSI analysis is not yet oversold, and it remains at an impartial ground, set for a new leg down. But in case the RSI pushes over 60, it will break the unrelenting bearish force.
In this optimistic breakout situation, correction targets the 0.9950 level, close to highs since the last consolidation zone on top of support of the consolidation region before that. Any break over 0.9950 will open afresh the 1.00-1.0020 spin around area. In case the market breaks lower than 0.98, the most likely support will be 0.9660.

EUR/AUD Testing Trendline Support, Threatening Reversal(0)
EUR/AUD Daily Chart
There has been some notable improvement in the EUR/AUD pair since it has moved from 1.2130 to around 1.2920 since Feb 2010. Noteworthy is the fact that this improvement is just beneath 50 percent retracement of a downtrend in the period between Nov.2011 to February 2012. It moved from 1.3805 to about 1.2130. It is also important to note that the 1.2920-1.3015 level indicates support of stagnant prices in the period between July and December 2011 when the support collapsed.
The market is currently bearish with resistance around 1.2920, which creates a divergence with RSI in the chart. This indicates a slowing uptrend and draws speculations for a range-bound market, at least, if not the reverse. The Marketing is still testing a growing trend line since it is now breaking beneath 1.28. Further break beyond this level suggests topping, and the likelihood of a reversal. Right now a break beneath 1.2750 is required in order to end some near-term support along with the increasing trend line.
EUR/AUD 4H Chart
According to 4H chart, a break beneath 1.2770 indicates a break out of a topping pattern. In case the 1.2750 is cleared, it would also do away with the trend line and the 4H 200SMA. And in case this top succeeds a pullback to move back over the 1.28 level will be impossible. Anything beyond 1.2850 suggests that it is time to forget the bearish outlook. Considering the daily trade chart, a break beneath brings forth the 1.2570 pivot. And beneath 1.2550, we get the 1.2130.
The slowdown in China continues to weigh on the Australian dollar, while the Euro remains the main focus especially due to the crisis in Greece.
