The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) played its part in impacting the market, especially in relation to USD and other currency pairs. For the AUD/USD there appears to be an opportunity on the horizon as things have changed following this committee meeting.
The AUD/USD has recovered from its losses incurred during the FED induced fall post FOMC and has retraced to its previous support turned resistance swing high area which makes for a good shorting opportunity.
The level around $0.76 is a good area to short with a tight stop loss as both days last week saw price try to break above but failed on both attempts and price dropped lower, explains PrimeXBT Analyst Kim Chua.
The $0.76 level is also the neckline of the Head and Shoulders Top pattern that is showing on the AUD/USD daily, with the FOMC event having broken it once before. Now, the price has gone back for a retest of the resistance and provides an opportunity for traders who missed shorting it earlier another chance at a good entry point.
This retesting will be critical in how the market moves from here and while it is uncertain how things will react, the level seems like a prime opportunity and another good entry point for shorting.
I expect AUD/USD to retreat to at least $0.73 as $0.72 is the downside target for the Head and Shoulders Reversal. The AUD/USD looks to have topped out to me and more downside should be on the way, added Chua
