Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Thursday AUD/USD rallied to a higher trading zone 0.6744- 0.6826. However, at the start of this week, the price declined eyeing a test of the low end of the zone.

Hence, a close below the low end could send AUDUSD towards 0.6631. Although, the Oct 2 low at 0.6671 should be monitored. Further close below this level may cause more bearishness towards 0.6594 then 0.6479 contingent on clearing the yearly support level underlined on the chart (zoomed in).

Having said that, any close above 0.6826 may increase the likelihood of testing the double bottom neckline located at 0.6894 . Although, the weekly resistance area marked on the chart would be worth monitoring.

If AUDUSD breaks and remains above the neckline, this could push the price towards 0.7000 handle and possibly above. However, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart should be kept in focus.

On the other hand, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone could reverse the pair’s direction and push it towards the high end of the zone. Although, the neckline of inverted head and shoulders pattern residing at 0.6348 with the weekly resistance level underscored on the chart should be watched closely.
