AUDUSD sellers attack 0.7365-60 support zone on China data

AUDUSD sellers attack 0.7365-60 support zone on China data

AUDUSD renews its monthly low during early Monday as mixed data from the biggest customer China joins the risk-off mood. However, a five-week-old horizontal support area surrounding 0.7365-60 tests the pair sellers. Adding to the downside filters is an upward sloping trend line from late February, around 0.7310 by the press time. It should be noted, however, that a clear downside break of the 0.7310 will need validation from the 0.7300 threshold before directing bears toward the early March swing low.

On the contrary, the 200-SMA level of 0.7410 guards the quote’s recovery moves ahead of the 100-SMA, at 0.7485 at the latest. During the quote’s successful break of 0.7485, AUDUSD could aim for 0.7540 and the 0.7600 resistance level. Moving on, successful trading past-0.7600 enables the Aussie pair to renew the yearly top close to 0.7665 by approaching the 0.7700 round figure.

It should be noted that oversold RSI and multiple key supports to the south can challenge the bears going forward. However, sour sentiment and a clear break below the key SMAs keep sellers hopeful.
