Today we’re looking at AUDUSD after the price failed once again to hold above .75 cents. The newest rejection also lines up with key resistance that also continues to hold buyers at bay.
Price failed at 75 cents for a fifth time today, reinforcing the current supply area. Above this area, we also have key resistance at 7540-7540. This level has been in play since July 2021, and for now, it is proving to be a significant sticking point blocking buyer’s momentum. Today, sellers so far hold control, and the AUD has led the losses out of the three primary risk majors, dropping 0.50% to today’s low.
Price, for now, is setting up a new consolidation pattern with support seen at 7465. This is the area sellers need to break to get a new leg going. A move through this level could set up a new pushback into areas between support and the main trend line retracement point of view, with the idea buyers will look at regaining control. It’s the next move that matters as if they can’t reach/break supply and resistance. This could be early signs a more significant shift in momentum is developing.
Traders will be watching tomorrow’s US employment data as this could impact the USD and, in turn, impact the AUDUSD. The data is due Friday at 11:30 pm AEDT.
