AUD/USD short-term technical outlook
The AUD/USD pair keeps trading near the 50% retracement of its July/August decline at 0.6880. The 4 hours chart shows that the pair is struggling around a mild-bullish 20 SMA, which remains far above the larger moving averages. Technical indicators in the mentioned chart are flat, the Momentum around its 100 level and the RSI at 60, indicating limited selling interest at the time being. Renewed demand sending the pair above the mentioned daily high should favor a continued advance during the upcoming hours, while the risk will turn south on a break below 0.6830, a Fibonacci support.
