AUDCHF Intraday Selling Pressure May Extend Towards the 0.6771 Level

AUDCHF Intraday Selling Pressure May Extend Towards the 0.6771 Level

 Published: May 31st, 2022

According to the RBA Governor Kent, the Bank is not interested in re-investing money proceeds from maturing bonds. Therefore, the quantitative tightening sentiment from letting bonds roll off would be bullish for the AUD against other currency pairs. Moreover, Kent added that the estimation of the neutral rate is somewhere between 2% to 3%. Regarding economic releases, the latest CAPEX data for Q1 came with a disappointing result at -0.3% q/q after the upward revision in Q4 2021 at 2.3%. The building and structure moved down by 1.7%, while spending on plant and equipment was up by 1.2%.

On the other hand, the SNB gained strength from the past week’s sentiment from Chairman Jordan’s comment on inflation that the bank is not interested in intervening in the currency market. In the latest economic releases, the Q1 GDP came at 0.5%, above the expectation of 0.3%, which increases the intraday selling pressure on the AUDCHF price.

However, further investor sentiment awaits an inflation report that may ease to 0.3% after last month’s 0.4% report. Let’s see the future price direction from the AUDCHF technical analysis.

According to the Ichimoku Cloud analysis, the AUDCHF H4 chart is trading at the Cloud resistance while the future cloud shifted its direction. Although the Senkou Span A is above the Senkou Span B in the future cloud, the current price faces a selling pressure from the 0.6923 static resistance in the H4 timeframe. Moreover, the existing selling pressure below the Kumo Cloud came with an impulsive momentum, which is still indicating a solid seller presence in the chart.
