AUD/USD Analysis Forecast, May 22, 2015 – Forecast

Analysis and Recommendation (AUD/USD Analysis Forecast 22 May):

The AUD/USD added 19 points showing little reaction to disappointing Chinese manufacturing data. On the contrary traders are now hoping the Chinese will add additional stimulus. The pair is at 0.7893.  China’s manufacturing sector contracted for a third straight month in May, a private survey showed on Thursday.  The HSBC flash Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) came in at 49.1, weaker than the 49.3 print forecast by Reuters but better than the 48.9 final showing in March. A reading below 50 indicates contraction.

The poor reading, which followed a raft of downbeat April data, reinforced analysts’ views that the government has to take bolder steps to combat a protracted slowdown, as growth threatens to drop below 7 percent for the first time since the global financial crisis.

The Aussie has found support after falling late yesterday following the release of US central bank minutes indicating its key interest rate will remain unchanged for some months.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis Forecast For 22 May

After breaking short term uptrend below, we saw that AUDUSD fell down till 0.7860. Today it made a weak rise and currently its over 0.7910. If gets below 0.7840 and has some hourly closings below, bearish pressure would be more on AUD/USD. For SELLERS targets should be 0.7860 and 0.78. Before getting over 0.7940, BUY is not recommended.
