Looking ahead on Monday, AUDUSD looks bullish as the pair ended higher after Friday trading session.

For the new week, our technical outlook looks bearish, immediate support level is at 0.65132 (WS1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 0.64288 (WS2). For potential buyers, as the current momentum is bearish, we prefer to look at firm break of the week high of 0.67045 as an important indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below week low of 0.65245 would indicate selling pressure.

For the month of January, AUDUSD is down by -3.09% or -210.3 pips lower.
