Current trend

Today, the pair AUD/USD has reached a local minimum and moved to recovery against the backdrop of consolidating a large volume of short positions.

Currently, investors are more cautious, since the consequences of the trade war can have a negative impact on USD. The aggressive strategy of Trump's administration caused discord between the US and its major allies, the EU and Canada. For this reason, China is strengthening its position, while the US is seeking economic isolation of the PRC. The consequences of economic confrontation can force the Fed to return to a neutral monetary policy, which will lead to a massive sale of USD. And although the existing dynamics are still speculative, investors need to take into account the growing global risks.

Today at 14:30 (GMT+2), the US Department of Commerce will publish data on personal expenditure. The projected growth of the indicator will contribute to further reduction of the instrument. However, if the actual data will be worse than the forecast, one can expect a significant strengthening of the pair in the afternoon.

Support and resistance

MACD histogram is in the negative zone keeping the sale signal. Stochastic is approaching the oversold zone and does not give a clear signal for opening positions.
