AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Bear flag breakdown is signaling scope for deeper losses

  • A bear flag breakdown seen in the AUD/USD's 4-hour chart is indicating that the sell-off from the Dec. 4 high of 0.7392 has resumed and the psychological level of $0.70 (target as per the measured move method) could be put to test soon.
  • The drop to 0.70 could happen before the end of the year if the Fed retains hawkish stance next week, squashing expectations of a 2019 rate hike pause.
  • Also, on the way lower, the pair may encounter support at 0.7164 (Nov. 13 low), which is also the 61.8% Fib R of 0.7021/0.7393.
  • The bearish view put forward by the flag breakout would be invalidated above 0.7247 (Dec. 13 high).
