The Greenback has loved a fairly good run by means of September and a few consolidation might be no unhealthy factor. Momentum indicators unsurprisingly prompt a level of overbuying final week and, so long as falls from right here should not heavy, the uptrend will in all probability resume pretty shortly with that 108.30 resistance again within the bulls’ sights. If they’ll high it, then the 108.75 area will likely be in upside focus subsequent. A sustainable push that far will in all probability take a bit if time and will should await October’s commerce now.

The Australian Greenback appears below specific strain having topped out within the final couple of days effectively beneath the shallow downtrend on its each day chart.
There appears little or no prospect that that stage will likely be challenged anytime quickly, and positively not earlier than month-end. Quick assist ranges to observe are in all probability 72.40, August 13’s closing peak, and 71.29 the place the cross made a modest base on September 2.
