Thus, another failure in closing above the high end of the zone could embolden sellers to send the price for a test of the low end of the zone. Further close below the low end could see AUDUSD trading even lower towards 0.6631. However, the daily and weekly support area and levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.
On the other hand, a successful close above the high end of the zone could see AUDUSD trading towards 0.6984. Additionally, it would keep the price above the neckline of the double bottom pattern located at 0.6894.
