Current trend

After Tuesday’s growth, the AUD/USD pair fell due to poor Australian GDP release. Yesterday the market ignored the positive Trade Balance data, while the significant decrease of US Continuing Jobless Claims affected the pair negatively. During the last three days, the instrument has been testing the strong resistance level of 0.7835 unsuccessfully, and it is now trading around the psychological level of 0.7800.

Today at 15:30 (GMT+2) a number of key US employment market news will be published, namely, the Unemployment Rate release. Considering the decrease in Continuing Jobless Claims number, the expected fall by 0.1% is possible, which will support USD fully, and the AUD/USD pair will go down below the level of 0.7680.

Support and resistance

On the 4-hour chart, the instrument was corrected to the middle average line of Bollinger Bands. The indicator is pointed horizontally, as the price range has narrowed insignificantly, which reflects the reverse of the trend. MACD histogram is in the correction near the zero line. Stochastic has left the oversold area and formed a strong buy signal.

Resistance levels: 0.7800, 0.7822, 0.7838, 0.7858, 0.7875, 0.7902.
