Key quotes of Commerzbank

“AUD/USD remains extremely bid and has started to erode the 0.6891/0.6932 2012-2020 resistance line, where it is likely to see some consolidation. This guards the 0.7031 December 2019 high, and beyond here lies the 55-month ma at 0.7290. 

“Initial support is now the 200-day ma at 0.6658.” 

“Key support offered by the 20-day ma at 0.6592 and the base of the near-term channel at 0.06510 maintain an upside bias.”
