The AUD/USD is rebounding sharply from monthly lows this Monday, as the US Dollar opens trading this week decisively lower. Technically the AUD/USD may now be considered trending higher in the short term, with the pair trading back above its 10 day EMA (exponential moving average) for the first time in 3 weeks. Traders should note that the 10 day EMA is found at .7408, and may be referenced as a point of support as prices trend higher. The next point of resistance on the daily chart may be found at the 200 day MVA (simple moving average) .7535.
In the event of a bearish reversal, traders should first look for prices to close back below the mentioned 10 day EMA later in the week. This change in momentum would then open up the pair to retest monthly lows which currently stand at .7335. In this bearish scenario, traders may next look for the AUD/USD to test the standing 2017 low found at .7165.
