Forex: AUD/USD upside capped around 1.0390

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Aussie dollar is hovering over 1.0380 on Wednesday after a couple of failed attempts to follow through 1.0390 so far.
In the domestic data front, the Westpac Leading Index rose 0.3% during January, matching December’s reading.

At the moment, the cross is advancing 0.11% at 1.0381 with the next resistance at 1.0410 (high Mar.18) and then 1.0413 (Upper Bollinger).
On the downside, a break below 1.0367 (MA200d) would aim for 1.0351 (low Mar.19) and finally 1.0332 (low Mar.18).
