  • USD/IDR confronts 50-day SMA after breaking monthly trend line resistance (now support).
  • 200-day SMA and a descending trend line since early-August will challenge the Bulls.

USD/IDR trades around 13,964 ahead of the European session on Monday. That said, the pair recently crossed a one-month-old falling trend line and rose to the 50-day SMA.

Buyers will look for sustained trading beyond a 50-day SMA level of 14,022 to escalate the recovery towards 200-day SMA and medium-term resistance line, around 14,140 and 14,210 respectively.

In a case where prices manage to remain strong beyond 14,210, multiple tops marked during mid-August around 14,360 will lure buyers.

On the flip side, a daily closing below the resistance-turned-support, around 13,970,  will keep dragging the quote to the last-week’s low near 13,840.
