FxWirePro: AUD/USD rangebound below 55-EMA, poor data and renewed risk-aversion dent Aussie

AUD/USD chart - Trading View 

  • AUD/USD is trading in a narrow range, trades at 0.7104 at 0500 GMT.
     
  • Price action capped between 55-EMA and 20-DMA, breakout will provide a clear directional bias.
     
  • Antipodeans subdued on renewed risk-aversion amid latest US-North Korea issue and China's temporary anti-dumping measures on some products from the European Union.
     
  • Further, downbeat Aussie data weigh negatively. Australian flash manufacturing PMI dropped to 52.0 vs. 52.9 previous.
     
  • Technical indicators are neutral on the daily charts, but major trend in the pair remains bearish.
     
  • Break below 20-DMA could see resumption of weakness. Dip till 0.70 and then trendline support at 0.6985 likely.
     
  • Decisive break above cloud and 110-EMA required for any meaningful gains.
     
  • Focus now on US macro news due later on Friday, including Markit manufacturing and services PMI reports, existing home sales and wholesale inventories, for fresh trading impetus. 

Support levels - 0.7092 (20-DMA), 0.7069 (cloud base), 0.70, 0.6985 (trendline)

Resistance levels - 0.7121 (55-EMA), 0.7161 (110-EMA), 0.7167 (cloud top)
