AUDUSD keeps the bounce off 200-SMA despite mixed jobs report as market sentiment improves during early Thursday in Asia. However, a convergence of the 100-SMA and one-week-old horizontal resistance, around 0.7500, appears a tough nut to crack for the pair buyers. In a case where the pair rises past the 0.7500 hurdle, 0.7540 and 0.7580 may act as intermediate challenges for the buyers before fueling the quote towards the monthly high of 0.7660.
On the contrary, a clear downside break of the 200-SMA, near 0.7400 by the press time, will allow AUDUSD sellers to aim for an upward sloping support line from February, near the 0.7300 round figure. During the fall, the early March swing high near 0.7365 may act as a buffer. That said, the pair’s sustained declines past 0.7300 won’t hesitate to challenge the previous monthly low near 0.7165.
It’s worth noting that a clear bounce off the key moving average joins firmer RSI and bullish MACD signals to keep short-term buyers hopeful.
