Focus Chart of the Day: AUD/USD

Price amp; Time: Minor USD Reprieve Or Something More?

A few markets are attempting to reverse around the key Gann Equinox period we highlighted last week. The most notable are JPY, AUD and the SP 500. All have been in very strong trends so the burden of proof is on USD bears as to whether this something more as opposed to the more likely scenario of just a minor reprieve. In AUD/USD the pair tested our key support zone at .8860/35 and this area should now hold if any sort of decent correction is unfolding. A move through .8950 is needed to confirm at least a temporary low is in place, but traction over .8980 is really required to raise the possibility that a more serious turn is underway. USD/JPY is in a similar situation as the rate has become vulnerable after JPY bulls fell to 3% last week. Interim support is eyed around 108.40, but a move under 107.35 is really needed to turn the outlook more negative and set off a more serious correction. A move through 109.40 would obviously undermine this negative scenario. Lastly in the SP 500 the key near-term level looks to be last week’s low near 1977/73, but only under 1932 warns that a more serious move lower is afoot.
