Looking ahead on Monday, AUDUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 0.65250.

For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 0.66904 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 0.65974. On the downside, we are looking at week low 0.65250 or 0.65043 (WS1) as immediate support level. AUDUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 0.65250 would indicate selling pressure.

For the month of December, AUDUSD is down by -0.4% or -26.6 pips lower.
