AUDUSD Techical Analysis
With the Aussie running out of gas from 0.7150, FXStreet’s own Valeria Bednarik notes that the AUDUSD is primed for a new 2018 low:
“the pair broke below the 23.6% retracement of its October’s decline on the back of Wall Street’s weakness, entering the Asian session a few pips below the level and with a short-term technical stance according to intraday technical readings.
In the 4 hours chart, the pair was unable to advance above its 20 and 100 SMA, both heading lower around the 38.2% retracement of the same decline at around 0.7110, as technical indicators hold near daily lows, the RSI still heading south and the Momentum directionless.
The key support from here is 0.7040, the yearly low, with a break below it opening doors for a continued decline toward the 0.6820 price zone.”
Support levels: 0.7040 0.7000 0.6960
Resistance levels: 0.7110 0.7145 0.7170
