Having reached cloud resistance on the 240 minute chart at 1.0365, the AUD/USD is expected to fail here and sell off to the 1.0237 23rd October 2012 low.

"Our longer term target is .9783, the 2011-2012 support line and then 0.9404 the 2009 peak", added the Commerzbank analyst.

Above 1.0368, rallies should remain capped by 1.0455/75 (30th Jan high and 55 day MA) "and while capped here attention will remain on the downside", she continued, as Commerzbank analysts look for a slide back to 1.0000 to unfold, "then the base of an 20 month converging range, this is currently located at .9783 (long term target)".
