AUDUSD stays on bears radar even as 200-SMA probes immediate downside

AUDUSD stays on bears radar even as 200-SMA probes immediate downside

A clear break of the monthly bullish channel welcomed AUDUSD buyers the last week despite the quote’s hesitance to break the 200-SMA. That said, bearish MACD signals add strength to the downside bias suggesting an imminent fall to the November 08 swing high surrounding 0.6550, given the successful break of the 200-SMA level of 0.6660. Following that, the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the Aussie pair’s November-December upside, around 0.6410, can’t be ruled out.

Meanwhile, any recoveries need to defy the channel breakdown by successful trading above the 0.6725-30 support-turned-resistance to recall the AUDUSD buyers. Even so, the 0.6800 hurdle comprising multiple levels marked since mid-November could test the bulls before giving them control. In a case where AUDUSD remains firmer past 0.6800, the December-start peak near 0.6850 could return to the chart. However, a convergence of the stated channel’s upper line and the monthly high, close to 0.6890, closely followed by the 0.6900 round figure, appears a tough nut to crack for the pair buyers afterward.

Overall, AUDUSD sellers are in the driver’s seat and await a clear break of the 200-SMA to dominate further.
