AUDUSD bulls struggle to hold the forte after posting the first weekly gain in seven on the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Interest Rate Decision Day. That said, the Aussie pair trades within a three-week-old bearish triangle, staying below the convergence of the 100-SMA and 50-SMA surrounding 0.6450 on the key day. It’s worth noting that the steady RSI and bearish MACD signals lure the sellers to sneak in and break the stated bearish triangle’s bottom line, close to 0.6420 at the latest. In a case where the risk-barometer pair remains weak past 0.6420, it confirms the bearish chart pattern and can well refresh the yearly low, currently the August 13 bottom of around 0.6360.
On the other hand, an upside clearance of the previously stated triangle’s top line, near 0.6530, could unleash the AUDUSD buyers. Following that, a downward-sloping resistance line from mid-July around 0.6600 will precede a five-week-old horizontal resistance zone surrounding 0.6625 to test the upside momentum. In a case where the Aussie pair buyers keep the reins, backed by the hawkish RBA actions or signals, the odds of witnessing a run-up toward July’s peak of around 0.6900 can’t be ruled out.
Overall, AUDUSD bulls run out of steam but the bears need approval from the RBA and the triangle breakdown.
