    AUD/USD Forex Technical Analysis – Trader Reaction to .7731 Sets the Near-Term Tone

    Abstract:The early price action indicates the direction of the AUD/USD on Friday will be determined by trader reaction to the pivot at .7731.

      The Australian Dollar is trading slightly better on Friday while hovering just below its highest level since 2018 reached earlier in the week. Traders are also awaiting the release of fresh U.S. jobs data likely to give clues on the extent of fiscal stimulus needed to prop up the coronavirus-hit economy. Firm U.S. Treasury yields are also helping to keep a lid on prices.

      At 10:41 GMT, the AUD/USD is trading .7776, up 0.0009 or +0.12%.

      [fx-article-ad]Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

      The early price action indicates the direction of the AUD/USD on Friday will be determined by trader reaction to the pivot at .7731.

      Bullish Scenario

      A sustained move over .7731 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move can generate enough upside momentum then look for the rally to possibly extend into .7820. Overtaking this level will signal the start of a new leg higher.

      Bearish Scenario

      A sustained move under .7731 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger an acceleration to the downside with .7643 the next downside target.

      Taking out .7643 will change the main trend to down. A move through this level will likely mean that U.S. Treasury yields have spiked higher.
