AUDUSD 4-hour Chart by TradingView

What can we expect from AUDUSD today?

AUDUSD on Thursday rose 0.34% to 0.65579. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling in oversold zone.

Updated daily direction for AUDUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 0.65249 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 0.65685 or trades above daily pivot 0.65467. Break above could target R1 at 0.65797. While to the downside, we are looking at 0.65249 (S1) and daily low of 0.65137 as support levels. AUDUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 0.65685 may suggest continuation after recent positive movement.

For the week to-date, take note that AUDUSD is bearish as the pair posted lower by -1.33%.
