With these two positive influences, we saw the AUDUSD break higher beating last night’s resistance and locking in the 4H higher low. (refer chart below) Buyers have continued to move higher today taking price back above .7700, reaching a 5 session high. While .7624 continues to hold as a daily low, we’re looking for price to remain in a bullish bias. .7719 could offer resistance to buyers on the short term.
