On September 25, AUD/USD rebounded from the low end of the current trading zone 0.7018 – 0.7235 and pointed higher eyeing a test of the high end. However, the price failed last week to close above the 50-day average highlighting that bearish sentiment was still intact. Hence, the price could be on the way to re-test the low end of the trading zone.

A daily close above the low end of the zone at 0.7018 could encourage bears to press AUD/USD towards the monthly support at 0.6772 (February 2020 high).

On the other hand, a daily close above the high end of the zone at 0.7235 may cause a rally towards the weekly resistance at 0.7327 (May 2017 low).

On October 2, AUD/USD traded below the bullish trendline support originated from the September 25 low at 0.7004. The price rebounded twice from the trendline resistance highlighting the bull’s weakness.

In conclusion, while bearish momentum is weak, a violation of the neckline of the double top pattern located at 0.7129 could accelerate the downtrend move. Therefore, a break below 0.7097 may send the pair towards 0.7030, while a break above 0.7257 could trigger a rally towards 0.7308. As such, the support and resistance levels underlined on the chart should be considered.
