AUD falling to meet support at hourly 100 SMA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - AUD/USD is trading at 0.9337, down -0.19% on the day, having posted a daily high at 0.9365 and low at 0.9332.

AUD/USD had been struggling around the 55 day moving average after the mid week break to the upside. The pair has slid at the end of the week on a strong greenback and month end flows. The hourly FXStreet OB/OS Index is showing neutral conditions, alongside the FXStreet Trend Index which is slightly bearish. Karen Jones, chief analyst at Commerzbank suggested that should the current August lows at 0.9240/39 give way, the 0.9182/77 May low and 200 day moving average would be eyed. “We also find the 55 week ma in this vicinity at 0.9212 and the 32.8% Fibonacci retracement at 0.9182. These represent major break down points and we suspect that they will hold the initial test. Longer term failure at 0.9182 will trigger the start of a move to 0.8891, the March low”.
