Australian dollar breaks down under 0.8280
By James Brandt - ACM Advanced Currency Markets, Geneva, Switzerland
News and Events:
Major currencies weakened against the dollar on slower central bank flows and increased profit taking. In particular, the Australian dollar took a hit today in early trading on the release of weaker Australian first quarter CPI figures, 0.1% actual versus 0.6% expected. AUDUSD traded from 0.8332 to 0.8235 on the news and has since come up to 0.8245. Look for strong support at 0.8180. A recovery back to 0.8300 could signal a continuation of the uptrend. Pay attention to today's and tomorrow's close price for directional clues.
The Euro has been range-bound so far this week between 1.3540 support and 1.3585 resistance. The pair could not break down below 1.3550 in early trading today, indicating fairly strong buying at that level. Buy on pullbacks but confirm with a break above 1.3585 to remain long.
Today's most interesting chart is EURPLN. The pair has been in a down trend for the past month, showing no indications of moving out of the channel. Our target remains at 3.7500 in the near-term. Sell on pullbacks.

The Risk Today:
EurUsd: range-bound so far this week between 1.3540 support and 1.3585 resistance. The pair could not break down below 1.3550 in early trading today, indicating fairly strong buying at that level. Buy on pullbacks but confirm with a break above 1.3585 to remain long.
GbpUsd has traded lower and lower since its high on April 18th. Look for the pair to trade to 1.9933, a 50% retracement from the 2.0133 high.
UsdJpy: pay close attention to the daily close today. 118.63 is a key level right now, a close above could signal a push back into the bullish channel. A close below could signal a break down. Hold back and wait until tomorrow on this one.
UsdChf ever since February, the pair has continued to make lower lows and lower highs. Key resistance for this pattern remains at the trend line at 1.2225. Initial support is 1.2000.
