Aussie Dollar vs US Dollar Technical Outlook

  • Bulls pullback due to a weaker risk-on sentiment
  • AUD vs USD price chart exposes a trendless move

AUD/USD – Indecisive Market

On June 15, AUD/USD declined to a two-week low at 0.6776. The price recovered all losses yet could not retest the previous week’s high highlighting that bulls were losing momentum. On Friday, the weekly candlestick closed with a Doji pattern reflecting the trader’s indecision at that point.

The market rallied on a V-shape recovery expectations driven by central bank stimulus around the globe and gradual easing of restrictions. Yet, the resurgence in coronavirus cases in the US and other countries knocked the investor’s confidence and drove them to slow down the US dollar selloff.

On June 10, AUD/USD soared to a near eleven-month high at 0.7064 however, the price reversed back to the current trading zone 0.6827 – 0.7015 as some bulls seemed to cut back.

Later on, the pair stabilized in the zone and traded in a sideways move creating a lower high with a higher low.

A close above the high end of the zone may resume bullish price action towards the 0.7300 handle. Any further close above that level could extend the rally towards 0.7414.

On the other hand, a close below the low end of the zone could spark a downside move towards 0.6684. Any further close below that level may encourage bears to press AUDUSD even lower towards 0.6409.
