Bullish chart potential for AUDUSD

Instrument: AUDUSD
Price target:
Market price:

AUDUSD strength in the face of a rebounding US dollar has surprised many traders – but not those who follow the domestic scene in Australia. Iron ore and coking coal prices continue to rise, defying predictions of imminent sharp declines, and the Reserve Bank of Australia’s monetary policy statement last week effectively took further interest rate cuts off the table for the foreseeable future. 
The Aussie will, no doubt, react to the US election result – for the Presidency as well as the Congress – but it would take a dominant win by the Democrats in both to give the US dollar much of a boost. More likely it will be a split decision: Presidency to Clinton; the Senate to the Republicans, which might induce some profit-taking in the USD.
Also worth keeping an eye on is tomorrow’s Reserve Bank of New Zealand's monetary policy statement. A big move by NZDUSD would take the AUDUSD along for the ride, although not as far. A rate cut is expected, and priced in, so the market-moving event will be the forward guidance given by the RBNZ.

Management and risk description

The Ozzy’s recovery persists (in keeping with its positive Elliott Wave structure) and there is now a potential multi-week (classical charting) Ascending Triangle pattern (see daily chart below), where while the Ozzy holds 0.7735/0.7720 support (on a closing basis) there is upside potential as high as 0.8025.


Entry:  ordinarily AUDUSD would be a buy now (at 0.7750) but with this being “US election day” will wait until after New York close today before finalising – welcome to ask me then.

Stop: 0.7618, initially.

Target: 50% at 0.7848 and 50% at 0.7993.

Time horizon: allow several weeks for both targets to be met.

Hi Max, what do you think now after the carnage?
John Roberti John Roberti
Max, there is a possibility of rate decline tonight with RBNZ? What do you think now of the NZD? Do you see the kiwi declining with Trump presidency, or climbing further to 75 or 76? Your opinion would be appreciated

Second andrewloz on this, and wonder to what degree the increased likelihood of a December rate rise by the Fed has been factored in.
