Well, it looks like it didn’t take much of a dip before traders bought back into the Aussie ahead of this mornings NFP numbers and on speculation the RBA will raise rates next week
Total: -100 pips
So, the .9100 handle held and the pair rallied, but we’re seeing a bit of ranging in between .9100 – .9200. We will probably continue to see ranging or even a slight trend higher ahead of next weeks data, so look out for that move to come.

Hello my friends! Looks like we’re seeing another risk averse day as higher yielding currencies, like the Aussie, sell off as US equities take a dive in the late afternoon. How far can it go?
Well, the Aussie has been on a run against the Dollar for the past week or so ahead of the FOMC rate cut as well as speculation we may see a rate hike by the RBA next month. This run started all the way from .8750, so the retracement may go a bit deeper before we see buying back into the pair on that speculation of a rate hike in Australia and possible future rate cuts in the US. We will sell at market (.9139) and target the 240 MA’s as are max profit target.
Sell AUD/USD at market (.9139), stop at .9239, pt1 at .9080, pt2 at .8980
