Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the AUD/USD the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at .7162.
A sustained move over .7162 will indicate the presence of buyers. Taking out .7192 could extend the rally into the main top at .7207. A move through this level will indicate the buying is getting stronger with the next major upside targets a downtrending Gann angle at .7278, followed by a main top at .7296.
A sustained move under .7162 will signal the presence of sellers. This could lead to a quick test of the major Fibonacci level at .7153. If this price fails then look for the selling to extend into the long-term uptrending Gann angle at .7124.
Without any major news from Australia, the United States or China, the price action could be limited.
