Australian Dollar Crosses

-AUDCHF and AUDCAD at risk of reversing
-AUDNZD in center of multi-week range; upside favored

Australian Dollar / Swiss Franc

The multi month AUDCHF rally (which is choppy and corrective in nature) is nearing the 61.8% retracement of the entire decline from 1.0091; at .8882. This is a potentially significant level that could see a reversal. RSI divergence as well as completion of what looks like an ending diagonal from .8048 warn of a turn.

Australian Dollar / Canadian Dollar

There is no confirmation of a top but be on the lookout for one because warning signs (including divergence with RSI and 5 waves up from .7719 in what is probably a C wave) indicate that the AUDCAD rally is unsustainable. A turn is expected.

Australian Dollar / New Zealand Dollar

The AUDNZD decline that ended just shy of the 61.8% of 1.2009-1.2949 at 1.2360 may have been a small second wave within an ongoing impulse from 1.2009. The larger trend is bullish above 1.2009 and a break through 1.30 is expected. I wrote last week that “in the event that a complex second wave is underway from 1.2949, the AUDNZD would dip below 1.2380 but just temporarily before the next bull leg.” The pair dipped to 1.2376 and has turned up. A bottom can not be confirmed at that level but the upside is favored against 1.2009
