AUD/USD Weekly Analysis Forecast, May 18-22, 2015 – Forecast

Weekly Analysis and Recommendation (AUD/USD Weekly Analysis Forecast):

The AUD/USD tumbled 44 points on Friday alone as traders worry about the Chinese economy and comments from the RBA. This week the US dollar weakened and the Aussie touched the 81 price range even though the central bank said it was overprices.  The Aussie has been pushed around this week as traders mulled whether a reduction in Chinese interest rates was good or bad for Australia, whether the Reserve Bank still considered the local currency’s level as “unjustified”, and whether the US economy would pick up in the second quarter following a softer first quarter.

The Australian dollar was heading lower as investors weighed weaker oil and iron ore prices before the release of economic data in the US shifted momentum in the local unit’s favor. Investors were let down by a surprisingly sharp fall in US consumer sentiment as well as a fifth straight drop in monthly industrial production numbers.
