AUDUSD – An aggressive build in forex trading crowd selling of the Australian Dollar versus the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) warns that the AUDUSD may in fact continue higher. We most often use our Speculative Sentiment Index as a contrarian indicator to price action; if most are selling, we prefer to buy.
It will be critical to watch whether the AUDUSD is able to trade above November highs of $1.0490. As it stands we will need to see an important shift in crowd sentiment before advocating selling the Australian Dollar against its US namesake.
