AUD/USD Price Analysis: Technical outlook
The AUD/USD shifted from neutral-upwards to downward-biased throughout the week. Worth noting that the major began the week above the 20, 50, and 100-DMAs. However, it tumbled courtesy of buyers unable to crack the 200-day EMA around 0.7130s despite the market’s “dovish” FOMC minutes reaction, which set the Aussie’s faith.
On Monday, the major plummeted below the 100-day EMA; by Wednesday, the AUD/USD was already 200-pips (2.99%) down in the week. Furthermore, as the downtrend gathered momentum, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) plunged from readings nearby 55 to 46, meaning sellers were in charge.
Therefore, the AUD/USD first support will be August low at 0.6869. Once cleared, the next demand zone will be the July 19 daily low at 0.6802, followed by the July 15 low at 0.6718.
