AUDUSD on Friday rose 0.46% to 0.65257. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2024-03-01, the pair dropped -0.6% or -39.7 pips lower.

Looking ahead on Monday, AUDUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 0.64873.

For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 0.65661 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 0.65264. On the downside, we are looking at week low 0.64873 or 0.64866 (WS1) as immediate support level. AUDUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 0.64873 would indicate selling pressure.

For the month of March, AUDUSD is up by 0.43% or 27.7 pips higher.
