Forex Commentary: AUDUSD topping out, 26th November 2010

Posted on

Forex Commentary:

The U.S. dollar rallied today as the euro slid to a new 2-month low on the back of fears that Portugal and Spain could join Ireland in needing bailouts to support their economies.

The greenback also put in a solid showing against the other majors today as did the Japanese yen.

Trading Setups / Chart in Focus:


The AUDUSD is developing signs of at least a short-term top, we can see the 8 and 21 day emas have crossed lower and price has broken and closed below support near 0.9700.

We would look to sell counter-trend rallies on strength in this market pending confirmation by bearish price action setups, support levels come near 0.9400 and 0.9200.
