AUDUSD July Range Targets Key Support- Shorts Favored Sub 9440

Notes: Last week’s key outside weekly reversal candle at Fibonacci resistance shifts our broader focus to the downside for the Aussie. With that in mind, there remains some key support barriers the pair would need to get through to validate the reversal, the first of which is the 9308/37 support zone. With the monthly opening range now set, we’ll look for a break of this region to validate our bias heading into the close of July trade with short scalps favored sub-9440.

Bottom line: we’ll look to sell rallies while below the monthly high with only a breach invalidating our medium-term bias. Divergence on the intra-day momentum signature suggests the pair may be vulnerable for a turn-over heading into Asia trade. Caution is warranted heading into the middle of the week with Chinese CPI data tonight and FOMC minutes/Australian employment tomorrow likely to fuel added volatility in the pair.
