AUD/USD DAILY PRICE CHART (FEB 13 – June 4, 2020) Zoomed IN
On April 23, AUD/USD closed above the 50-day moving average and started a bullish bias creating a set of higher highs with higher lows. On Tuesday, the price climbed to the current trading zone 0.6827 – 0.7015 eyeing a test of the high end of it.
A close above the high end of the aforementioned trading zone may encourage bulls to push towards 0.7158, and a further close above this level could extend the rally towards the 0.7300 handle.
In turn, any failure in closing above the high end of the zone signals bull’s hesitation yet, it would require a close below the low end of the zone to increase the likelihood of any fall towards 0.6684. A further close below this level could send AUDUSD even lower towards 0.6409.
That said, the weekly support and resistance levels underlined on the daily chart (zoomed in) should be considered in both bullish/ bearish scenarios.
