AUDUSD seesaws within rising wedge despite upbeat Australia inflation

AUDUSD seesaws within rising wedge despite upbeat Australia inflation

AUDUSD makes rounds to mid-0.6600s early Wednesday despite witnessing better-than-forecast Monthly Consumer Price Index (CPI) data from Australia. In doing so, the Aussie pair flirts with a horizontal support zone comprising multiple levels marked since early January, close to 0.6645-40. The pair’s latest weakness could be linked to the bearish MACD signals and a steady RSI (14) line. However, the sellers need validation from a nine-week-old rising wedge bearish chart formation between 0.6610 and 0.6720 to retake control. Even so, a convergence of the 100-SMA and the 50-SMA, near 0.6560, will be a tough nut to crack for the bears.

Meanwhile, the AUDUSD pair’s rebound from the aforementioned support zone surrounding 0.6645-40 could quickly reclaim the 0.6700 round figure ahead of challenging the bearish chart pattern by poking the 0.6720 upside hurdle. If the quote remains firmer past 0.6720, it will also portray a bullish crossover among the moving averages and suggest further advances. That said, the 0.6800 round figure might test the Aussie pair’s upside past 0.6720 before directing it to the late 2023 peak around 0.6870.

Overall, a lack of conviction in the upbeat Aussie inflation signals and downbeat oscillators keep AUDUSD sellers hopeful within a bearish chart pattern. However, the road toward the south appears long and bumpy.
