AUD/USD Price Forecast – Australian Dollar Getting Extraordinarily StretchThe Australian dollar has ignored gravity for some time, and it is likely to see some type of exhaustion. 0.70 is where the longer-term multi-year trend changes.
The Australian dollar has rallied a bit during the trading session again on Tuesday, as we are getting so overstretched it is quite remarkable. With the reopening of economies in the fact that Australia has taken negative rates off the table, the Australian dollar has been plowed into. Having said that, it is a bit difficult to see who is left to start buying. However, you clearly cannot just jump in and start shorting as it has been so massive in its move. Because of that, it is a matter of simply waiting to see whether or not we rollover.
Keep in mind that the Australian dollar is highly levered to the global trade situation, and that of course is something that is not going to do quite so well, so this is one of those things that eventually once the trade rolls over, this could be a huge one.
