Go strategic

Rarely a monthly chart adds much value to short- and mid-term assessments of a currency pair performance. But not this time. Currently, the AUD/USD is at 0.6617. The last time it has been this low was March 2009. 11-year low! That tells something. 

Go tactical

The country of origin for 24% of Australian imports is the same as the destination for 35% of exports - China. And now China is hit by the virus. Consequently, Australia gets hit as well. That doesn’t answer why the AUD has been in decline against the USD since 2011, but it does tell us what the mid-term direction for the currency pair will be. Add there state-wide bushfires resulting from climate change, and you will have even more certainty.

XAUUSD: Will Gold Continue to Rally?

Last week I gave a trade idea on XAUUSD with a target around the $2,020 price line. At the time of writing, XAUUSD already exceeded the target and I’m sure that would leave a lot of people wondering what to expect next. Below, I have presented my view of how I expect the price action to turn out in the meantime.
