AUDUSD – You can’t claim victories without admitting defeat—I couldn’t have been any more wrong as I called for a significant Australian Dollar bounce. Watch out for further risk of AUD losses.


Trade Implications – AUDUSD: The fact that the Australian Dollar has essentially crashed despite extremely one-sided retail and futures traders forex positions is significant. Clearly traders are not done selling AUD, and the risk of further declines is significant.


I won’t ignore the risk that a rush out of AUDUSD-short positions could force a material AUD rally. But that’s what makes the post-FOMC sell-off that much more important. I don’t think it’s time to get in front of a runaway freight train, and our systems are duly short the Aussie Dollar.
