AUD/USD Remains Bullish After Bouncing off the 50 SMA
Skerdian Meta • 1 min read
The USD started making some decent gains in October, but it turned bearish again during the election week. The AUD/USD took advantage of this, surging 350 pips higher that week, although last week we saw a pullback down to the 50 SMA (yellow) on the H4 chart.
The 50 SMA held as support, and the AUD/USD bounced off that moving average. Today, RBA’s Lowe mentioned negative interest rates, but he hinted that the odds of them going in that direction are quite slim. The AUD/USD remains bullish, and we might go long if the price retreats to the 50 SMA again.
RBA governor, Philip Lowe in the Q&A Session After the Speech
- Would rethink negative rates if global peers went negative
- The costs still outweigh the benefits of negative rates for now
- Negative rates still extraordinarily unlikely
- Would consider negative rates if all the world’s major banks had negative rates
