Are you new to FX or curious about your trading IQ?


FOREXAnalysis: AUDUSD near term focus is on .9800 (78.6% of rally from .9580) although the line that extends off of the 2011 and 2012 lows is at about .9858 on Wednesday. The presence of these levels increases the risk of a bounce…resistance is estimated between .9977 and parity.


FOREXTrading Strategy: I exited the short today but the bias is still short…now against 1.0170. Looking to short again between .9977 and 1.0030. The decline may take a more choppy form from this level down to .9700.


LEVELS: .9700 .9800 .9855 .9939 1.0003 1.0030
