AUD/USD continues to sit down close to the lows for the day round zero.7220 as value stays under the 100-day MA (purple line) @ zero.7237.
That would be the key line within the sand for AUD/USD as we shut out the week. The current rhetoric for the aussie hasn’t been too good particularly after the Q3 GDP report disillusioned earlier within the week. That prompted questions in regards to the RBA’s capacity to hike charges subsequent 12 months and there is even chatter of doable fee cuts now if issues proceed down this path.
From a technical perspective, the upside transfer seems to have stalled just under the 200-day MA (blue line) with the 21 August excessive @ zero.7382 serving to to restrict beneficial properties. Proper now, the main focus might be all in regards to the payrolls information later however the important thing merchandise on the agenda to be careful for might be wages.

Within the occasion of any beat on the info, be careful for the zero.7200 deal with in AUD/USD. That is still the important thing draw back degree that’s holding off additional declines on the day by day chart and a break under that can open up additional room to the draw back. Ought to the zero.7200 degree give means, the 13 November low @ zero.7164 might be eyed and if that fails to carry it might be a fast journey again in the direction of the 12 months’s lows once more for the pair.
As for any upside breaks, be careful for the 100-day MA within the near-term earlier than the zero.7250-60 degree comes into focus. There’s about AUD 6.5 billion price of expiries at these ranges so they might act as a magnet for value motion afterward within the day.
