As suggested in Friday’s chart analysis, the AUDUSD swung higher and then reversed around the channel resistance area. Price is up-trending within a bullish channel. The moving averages are bullish and are steady, signalling that the uptrend could continue. Buying opportunities may exist around the dynamic support of the moving averages, around the channel support area and around the recent swing low at 0.8005. A move to the upside could stall or reverse around the recent swing high at 0.8135 and the channel resistance area.
