AUD/USD Technical Analysis: defends 61.8% Fib support despite weak data, revisits three-week highs
- The AUD/USD pair revisited three-week highs near 0.7170 soon before press time, having defended the former resistance-turned-support of 0.7146 (61.8% Fib R of 0.7393/0.6744) earlier today, despite the weaker-than-expected Aussie building approvals figure.
- A close today above that level would confirm a bearish-to-bullish trend change and open the doors to 0.7247 (Dec. 13 high).
- Supporting the bullish case is the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) of 54.00 and the positive crossover between the 5- and 10-day moving averages (MAs).
- Bullish pressures will likely weaken if the AUD violates the higher low of 0.7106.
