Australian Dollar Analysis and Talking Points

AUD/USD | Facing Key Resistance

After two consecutive weekly gains, this week has seen a slight change in fortune for the Australian Dollar with the currency easing marginally by 0.2%. Momentum indicators are bullishly aligned for AUD/USD, however, trend signals are relatively weak, suggesting that upside in the pair may be capped.
