Technical Analysis: AUDUSD jumps back towards 200-SMA amid firmer sentiment

AUDUSD reverses Friday’s pullback from the key moving average while picking up bids to 0.7286 during early Monday. In doing so, the Aussie bulls brace for another battle with the 200-SMA level of 0.7305. However, any further upside needs to cross the previous week’s top surrounding 0.7315 to extend the run-up towards the mid-month peak surrounding 0.7345-50. In a case where market optimism helps the risk barometer pair to remain firmer past 0.7350, the 0.7410 and the monthly high close to 0.7480 will be in focus.

Meanwhile, pullback moves may first retest 61.8% Fibonacci retracement (Fibo.) of the late August to early September upside, near 0.7245. Following that, the monthly horizontal support area, near 0.7220, and 78.2% Fibo. level near 0.7185 should probe AUDUSD bears ahead of directing them towards August month’s low, also the yearly bottom, close to 0.7105. Overall, AUDUSD consolidates pullback from early month highs but key supports provide intermediate bounces.
