A platform for AUDUSD recovery

partner and technical analyst / 3 c analysis
United Kingdom

While bullish signals for the AUDUSD were confirmed in the previous week, the failure from close to 0.7489 – a 50% recovery to the entire April-May losses – switched last week’s signals to bearish. 

These too have been confirmed with initial losses of almost one big figure. However, in contrast the market has recovered the losses with the failed selloff improving sentiment. 

Prices are oscillating around their key moving averages, but with the 200-day line providing a platform, signals are pointing to a recovery.
