The monthly S1 provided sufficient support for the Aussie, causing it to rebound against the US Dollar on Thursday. However, the pair was unable to maintain trade above the 0.75 major level, which resulted in relatively flat trade yesterday. Nevertheless, today's RBA Monetary Policy Statement triggered a rather sharp sell-off of the Australian currency. In case the nearest support fails to keep the AUD/USD currency pair from falling deeper, then the second area in face of the 100-day SMA, the monthly S2 and the weekly R3 around 0.7315 is likely to limit the losses.
Today 73% of traders hold long positions, compared to 75% on Thursday. Purchase orders now take up three quarters (75%) of the market, opposed to 50% yesterday.
