The AUD/USD is consolidating with a series of inside bars after posting a new monthly high last Wednesday. March’s high is currently found at .7528 and is acting as a point of resistance for the pair. Conversely Wednesdays low for the AUD/USD is found at .7412, and is acting as support. With SSI reading at -1.86, traders may take a bullish bias for the pair and begin looking for breakouts above resistance to enter into the market.

In the event of a breakout, traders may consider extrapolating potential targets using ATR. Current daily ATR for the AUD/USD reads at 89 pips. This means using a 2X ATR target, traders may begin looking for price to reach .7706. Extend targets found using 4X ATR may also be found near .7884.

In the event of a false breakout, traders will look for prices to return back inside Wednesdays range. In this scenario a move to .7470 would suggest a return to consolidating markets. Alternatively, a decline below support at .7412 would have additional bearish implications for the pair.
