AUD/USD Price Analysis: Aussie capped below previous support at 0.7095


  • AUD/USD's recovery attempt has been capped right below 0.7100
  • The previous support level turned resistance and the 50-hour SMA are limiting upside attempts.
  • On the downside, 0.7055 level is supporting the pair.

The Australian dollar has dropped nearly 2% this week weighed by US dollar strength amid a generalized rush for safety. The pair extended its reversal from last week’s highs at 0.7245, to reach two-week lows at 0.7050 before posting a mild recovery attempt on Friday, that has been capped right below 0.7100.

Hourly charts show the pair moving practically flat over the last sessions, with upside attempts capped below 0.7095, where the pair has found resistance on a former support level (October 6 low) and also the 50-hour SMS, which has been holding the pair down previously.

On the upside, a convincing break beyond the mentioned 0.7095 level might increase bullish momentum, driving the pair towards 0.7145 (October 15 high) and 0.7210/ 20 (October 13 high/intraday level).

On the flipside, initial support lies at 0.7055 (October 15 low). Before here, the pair would resume the downtrend heading towards 0.7030 (September 28 low) and 0.7000 (September 25 low).
