Top Trade Idea For December 18th, 2014 – AUDUSD
Yesterday’s FOMC decision and press conference was followed by a US dollar buying mood all over the dashboard as the Fed basically gave a timing for the possible future rate hike: a couple of more meetings away.
However, if I were to pick an opposite view, I would pick audusd as a good candidate, and these are my arguments.
On the fundamental side, Stevens in Australia is talking the aud down saying that normal levels should be around 75 cents on a dollar. Yesterday Yellen was hawkish the dollar too. But markets not always move as central bankers want, as in this case it is too obvious.
Therefore, I would like to take a trade in the opposite direction, buying audusd in this daily trend line support, as the double zigzag seems to be completed and a bounce now is expected.
As targets, we should see at least the upper part of the channel to be tested again, and this gives the 0.90 area, while a move into the 0.7900 level should invalidate both this channel and this trade.
Being a daily chart, patience is needed and it might be the trade for the 1st half of 2015.
