Additionally, MACD is turning bullish and hence challenging the confluence of 21-day SMA, a descending trend line from September 18, around 0.7190.

Other than the immediate upside barrier, the 50-day SMA level of 0.7206 and a five-week-old downward sloping resistance line, at 0.7245 now, also probe the bulls.

In a case where AUD/USD manages to cross 0.7245, the 0.7300 threshold and the mid-September high near 0.7350 can please the buyers.

Alternatively, the monthly bottom surrounding 0.7095, followed by September 25 top near 0.7085, can restrict the pair’s near-term declines ahead of the previous month’s low close to the 0.7000 psychological magnet.
