AUDUSD was pushed higher to .7276 on Friday, following the created on Thursday's volatile price action . Essentially creating a triple-top. This level has acted a strong resistance. After being rejected, price action is at a support crossroads.
The pair close on price action support of .7180 and could look to challenge a minor uptrend support , dating back to September 10.
A close below this level will open up a longer, intraday descending , and further support could be tested at ,7137 and .7096.
Momentum is likely fading. The sharply contracted, while the looks to be rolling over. Further price action weakness could, eventually, lead into a +/- DMI convergence.
However, if support holds, the pair may retest .7180 as it grinds along the uptrend. A break above .7180 could cause the pair to explode and test .7233 and .7273.
Even though the US dollar pulled back last week, there is still the perception that the Fed will hike this year. This will keep the dollar somewhat supported, while global growth concerns - including China, Australia and NZ - will weigh on AUDUSD .
