Be it a weekly ascending trend channel of the bull cross, AUDUSD flashes upside signals ahead of the key monetary policy meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). That said, the bulls may retreat from the upper line of the stated channel, around 0.7040 by the press time. Even if the quote rises past 0.7040, the mid-June swing high near 0.7070 could challenge the additional run-up. It’s worth noting, however, that the pair’s run-up beyond 0.7070 enables it to challenge June’s peak of 0.7282, with the 0.7100 and the 0.7200 round figures likely to offer intermediate halts during the expected rise.
Meanwhile, the 50-SMA and the channel’s support line together restrict the short-term AUDUSD downside to around 0.6930. following that, the 200-SMA, close to 0.6880, could challenge the pair bears. In a case where the prices remain weak past 0.6880, the 0.6760 and 0.6710 may act as the last defenses for the buyers, breaking which the south-run towards the yearly low of 0.6751 can’t be ruled out.
Overall, AUDUSD is on the bull’s radar ahead of the key RBA. However, further upside may witness a pullback before challenging June’s peak.
