AUDUSD bulls eye 200-DMA on Aussie employment data day

AUDUSD bulls eye 200-DMA on Aussie employment data day

Although AUDUSD retreats from a descending trend line from early April, the 100-DMA challenges the pair bears as they cheer a retreat from a two-month high. The same paves the way for the Aussie pair’s another battle with the 200-DMA hurdle, around 0.6950 by the press time. It should be noted, however, that the overbought conditions of RSI suggest the quote’s third pullback from the key moving average resistance. Though, a clear upside break of the 200-DMA, as well as sustained trading beyond the 0.7000 psychological magnet, won’t hesitate to challenge the August 2022 peak near 0.7135.

On the contrary, a daily closing beneath the 100-DMA support surrounding 0.6700. Following that, July’s low near 0.6680 can act as an extra downside filter before directing bears toward the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the April-October downturn, close to 0.6520 as we write. In a case where AUDUSD bears dominate past 0.6520, the odds of witnessing a fresh yearly low, currently around 0.6170, can’t be turned down.

Overall, AUDUSD is on the bull’s radar but the 200-DMA appears strong challenge for the pair’s further upside.
