What can we expect from AUDUSD today?
AUDUSD on Thursday dropped -0.04% to 0.64291. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising.
Updated daily direction for AUDUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 0.6409 (S1).
Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 0.64557 or trades above daily pivot 0.64324. Break above could target R1 at 0.64524. While to the downside, we are looking at 0.6409 (S1) and daily low of 0.64123 as support levels. AUDUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below 0.64123 would indicate selling pressure.
For the week to-date, take note that AUDUSD is bullish as the pair continued to trade higher and is up by 1.54% over the past few days.
