Chart of the day: Bullish key reversal by US$ v NOK...


There is a generally steadier tone noted in the US Dollar.  Against the Norwegian Krone, for instance, a 1.8% gain was noted.  Also, a 'Trough' Key Day Reversal was noted from NK7.6050.  This feature could signal an end to the correction from the month's early overbought high near NK8.0000.

However, the chart pattern on the right is not very convincing from a longer-term bullish point of view.  What is more, it may yet turn out to be a large top formation.



Daily Comment:


The pullback from the overbought early-June, and all-time, high by the US Dollar versus Mexican Peso encountered intraday support at MP15.1687.  This is close to the 100-day Moving Average, which has offered support on a couple of occasions in recent months.  We remain long the pair.

The Australian Dollar did try to extend its recovery against its US cousin yesterday, edging over initial resistance at US$0.7819; near the 50-day MA.  A clean breakout would have had the May high at US$0.8164; close to the 200-day MA, as a target.  Instead, currently trading at US$0.7763 and thus failing to maintain the breakout, the Aussie risks further 'bull trap' slippage towards support at the floor area along US$0.7600.

The fact that the general rally in the British Pound was becoming overbought was touched upon in yesterday's report.  This is why we ignore the 'Bull' P&F Breakout signals generated by Sterling versus the US and Singapore Dollars.  In the case of the latter shown here, there is also sturdy looking resistance nearby, from the 2014 barrier at S$2.1426.

The UK currency appears in the 'Losers' list versus the Australian Dollar, with -0.4%.  The surging, and overbought, rally displays a slight loss of momentum, though this could signal the start of a corrective phase.  The profitable stop was hit on the long trade, making 1.50%.

We continue to hold a long trade in the Australian unit versus Japanese Yen.  The graph shows the rate to be developing further support near the top side of the previous base; close to both the long and short-term MAs.  A sustained break over Y97 is required to signal a renewal of the advance.
