Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet explained that in the 4 hours chart, AUD/USD approaches a bullish 20 SMA. "Technical indicators turned lower within positive territory, rather reflecting the absence of follow-through than suggesting upward exhaustion. The pair topped this past week at 0.7635, the level to surpass to confirm a new leg higher towards the critical 0.7700 region."
