AUD/USD Price Analysis: Daily golden 61.8% ratio under pressure


  • AUD/USD bulls are pressing up against a wall of resistance.
  • AUD/USD bears looking to the 4-hour W-formation's neckline. 

In a 61.85 Fibonacci retracement, AUD/USD is testing the bearish commitments near the 0.73 figure following heavy buying on Thursday. Bulls are moving in on the 0.7320 resistance and near to the 21-day moving average and the summer support.

The 21 or the 50-day moving averages would be expected to be tough resistance and failures would likely lead to a downside continuation for the coming days. 

The following illustrates the structure of the market on the daily and 4-hour time frames.
