On Friday, AUDUSD offered the first daily closing beyond the 200-DMA, as well as a downward-sloping trend line from June, despite an upbeat US jobs report. The upside momentum recently crossed multiple hurdles surrounding the 0.6900 threshold, as well as the tops marked during early September 2022 near 0.6915, which in turn suggests the pair’s run-up towards the 0.7000 psychological magnet. In a case where the Aussie bulls keep the reins past 0.7000, a run-up towards the August 2022 peak around 0.7135 can’t be ruled out.
Alternatively, sellers need to wait for a clear downside break of the resistance-turned-support line from June, close to 0.6830 at the latest. Even so, a two-month-old ascending support line, near 0.6730, could probe the AUDUSD bears before giving them control. In a case where the Aussie pair remains weak past 0.6730, the lows marked during December and the mid-November, close to 0.6630 and 0.6585 in that order, should lure the sellers.
Overall, AUDUSD is ready for further upside towards the 0.7000 psychological magnet.
