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.

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.
