The AUDUSD is in a downtrend on the H1 chart ever since making a double top near 0.9200 resistance continuing its fall to drop below the 33 exponential moving average and to trade outside the previous upward channel. However it did manage to find support at key level 0.9100.
Analysts at NAB assessed, “We see GDP growth softening to 2.2% in 2013, before rising to 2.6% in 2014, and a significant deterioration in the labour market is expected this year (unemployment above 6%) and next. Our forecasts have been revised a touch lower – with downside risks building. When combined with still low inflation, we expect another RBA cut, probably in November, and more cuts may follow. We remain a touch more bearish than recently revised (down) forecasts from the Government and the RBA”.

We saw Gold break 1331 resistance yesterday to achieve a new top for the uptrend at 1343. Since then Gold seesawed between minor gains and losses Tuesday, with strength in the U.S. dollar serving as a headwind ahead of U.S. retail-sales data that may support the Federal Reserve’s plan to start tapering monetary stimulus. We can also notice that the 1331 resistance turned from a resistance to a support as we can see from today’s low
