UDUSD bulls eye 0.7370 on inverse head-and-shoulders confirmation

UDUSD bulls eye 0.7370 on inverse head-and-shoulders confirmation

Upbeat Aussie jobs report and hawkish moves of the Fed, as well as the BOE, pushes RBA towards a rate hike, favoring AUDUSD prices to consolidate losses posted since late October. To convince the buyers, the Aussie pair recently confirmed an inverse head-and-shoulders bullish chart pattern with a clear upside break of 0.7180. As per the theory, the breakout directs the run-up towards the mid-November peak surrounding 0.7370. However, 200-SMA and 78.6% Fibonacci retracement (Fibo.) of November-December moves, respectively near 0.7240 and 0.7290, will precede the 0.7300 threshold to offer intermediate halts during the quote’s further advances.

Alternatively, pullback moves remain elusive beyond 0.7170, a break of which will dash the bullish formation. However, AUDUSD sellers will wait for a clear downside past the shoulder 2, around 0.7100, for fresh entries. Following that, 0.7060 and the yearly low near 0.6990 may entertain the bears before highlighting the 61.8% Fibonacci Expansion (FE) level of 0.6945. Overall, AUDUSD is up for further advances during the rest of 2021, unless no surprises pop up.
