Daily Currency Outlook: AUD/USD And EUR/CHF : November 19,2018
AUD/USD Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.7275; (P) 0.7307; (R1) 0.7363;
Intraday bias in AUD/USD remains on the upside with focus on 0.7314 resistance. Sustained break there will indicate medium term reversal. Further rally should be seen to 38.2% retracement of 0.8135 to 0.7020 at 0.7446 next. Nevertheless, failure to sustain above 0.7314, and break of 0.7164 support will retain bearishness and turn bias back to the downside for retesting 0.7020 low.
In the bigger picture, AUD/USD’s decline from 0.8135 could have completed at 0.7020 already, ahead of 0.6826 key support (2016 low). Break of 0.7314 will confirm and bring strong rebound. But for now, we’d expect strong resistance from 0.7500 support turned resistance to limit upside. Medium term fall from 0.8135 should extend to take on 0.6826 low at a later stage.
EUR/CHF Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.1390; (P) 1.1412; (R1) 1.1439;
Intraday bias in EUR/CHF remains neutral for the moment. The structure of price actions from 1.1501 suggests it’s a consolidation pattern. In case of another fall, downside should be contained by 61.8% retracement of 1.1173 to 1.1501 at 1.1298 to bring rebound. On the upside, break of 1.1470 resistance will argue that rise from 1.1173 is resuming. Break of 1.1501 will revive the case of bullish trend reversal.
In the bigger picture, price actions from 1.2004 medium term top is seen as a correction only. Downside should be contained by support zone of 1.1198 (2016 high) and 61.8% retracement of 1.0629 to 1.2004 at 1.1154 to complete it and bring rebound. This cluster level is in proximity to long term channel support (now at 1.1261) too. A break of 1.2 key resistance is still expected in the medium term long term. However, sustained break of the mentioned support zone will mark reversal of the long term trend. In that case, 1.0629 key support will be back into focus.
