FOREX AUD/USD – 0.7540 ( -62 or -0.82% ) The Aussie dollar has once again reversed on our levels. We mentioned last week could be pivotal for this rally and have seen this play out. With little AUD data this week all eyes will be on data from around the world. For a move higher we would like to see a break and close above 0.7561. This could then see the AUD make a move to 0.7662 and 0.7729 before a pause. Should we break and close above 0.7729 we could see a very strong push up to 0.7833; and if momentum remains strong we will then be 0.7903.

On the downside, if we fail to break above 1.1249 we could see the EURO result in a move back down to 1.1201. Should the EURO continue to taper off, a break below this level may result in a quick moves down to 1.1163 and 1.1117 before a pause.
