Commodity Chart Of The Day: The Aussie

by: Matthew Bradbard

Commodity chart of the day

Daily Australian dollar

The chart above is the Australian dollar which has appreciated 5% in the last month as one can see. After a 50% Fibonacci retracement and running into upside resistance at the trend line I'm thinking prices maybe getting exhausted. Not to mention the heavy correlation to commodities and we could experience some retracements in commodities near term, in my opinion.

From overbought levels I could see in the next few weeks a trade back near the 20 day MA at .9800 in the September contract. My favored play would be a short futures while simultaneously selling out of the money puts 1:1.
