Post RBA Trading Plan For The AUD/USD
Shain Vernier • 1 min read
The Reserve Bank of Australia issued their announcements earlier in the forex session. Rates were held steady at 1.5%, and the Aussie initially took the news in stride. Since that time, there has been a failed auction above Monday’s high and a pronounced run to the bear.
Currently, the AUD/USD is off over 40 pips, with price action threatening downside macro support levels. Trade has been largely sideways for the past two weeks. As of now, this market looks to be on the verge of breaking out. In addition to yesterday’s trade recommendation, there is a live signal for the AUD/USD on the board.

Participation is heavy, and the market is taking a skeptical view of the Aussie.

Support(2): October swing low, .7624
Overview: Price is currently trending towards our macro support level of .7628. In the event that we trade beneath October’s low, a pronounced sell-off is possible. For a detailed outline of this scenario, refer to Monday’s trading plan for the AUD/USD.
If you are active in this market, be aware of U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s speech scheduled for 2:30 PM EST. It is a potential market mover and one that may fuel short-term volatility.
