Australian Dollar Moves Higher Against U.S. Dollar

AUD/USD is testing the resistance at 0.7740 while the U.S. dollar is losing ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index is slowly moving towards the nearest support level at 90. In case the U.S. Dollar Index manages to settle below this level, it will head towards the support at 89.75 which will be bullish for AUD/USD.

There are no important economic reports scheduled to be released in the U.S. and Australia today so foreign exchange market traders will likely focus on general market sentiment and Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan.

While some Republicans have already raised concerns about the huge size of the new stimulus package, the stimulus plan is expected to get enough votes which is bullish for riskier assets like Australian dollar.

Oil is rebounding after the recent sell-off and other commodities are also receiving some support from investors which is an additional bullish catalyst for the Australian currency.

If AUD/USD settles above the resistance at 0.7740, it will head towards the next resistance level at 0.7760. A successful test of this level will push AUD/USD towards the resistance which is located at 0.7780.
