7/26/2010 – AUD/USD – Price action on AUD/USD (a 4-hour chart of which is shown) as of Monday (7/26/2010) morning has just closely approached its key bullish resistance target of 0.9000, the potential for which was noted in last week’s AUD/USD analysis.
This reach towards resistance, which establishes a new 2+ month high, occurs within the context of an uptrend extending from the early July double-bottom low (in the 0.8315 price region), and after price made a critical breakout above the key 0.8850 triple-top resistance late last week. Currently, price action is at an important juncture around 0.9000. In the event of a strong breakout above 0.9000, a further key resistance target to the upside resides around the 0.9150 price region, a significant prior support/resistance region.
If the 0.9000 area resistance is respected, downside support within the context of the current uptrend continues to reside around the noted 0.8850 support region.
