AUD/USD short-term technical outlook
The AUD/USD broke clearly above the 0.6520 resistance area and climbed to 0.6565 before losing some momentum. The pair is currently consolidating near the top, reflecting that the positive momentum remains intact. The next critical resistance level to watch is around 0.6600, which is a horizontal area and the 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA).
The 4-hour chart indicates some consolidation ahead, with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) stabilizing around 70 and the Momentum turning modestly lower. However, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is giving bullish signals. As of the Asian session, the bias remains tilted to the upside, and further gains are likely as long as the price stays above 0.6505.
