AUD/USD chart - Trading View 

  • AUD/USD extends gains for the 3rd straight session, breaks above 5-DMA.
     
  • Aussie buoyed as China’s industrial profits surged after the previous two months of deterioration.
     
  • China's industrial profits in March rise 13.9 pct year-on-year to 589.52 billion yuan ($87.62 billion), data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed. 
     
  • Profits recovered from a 14 percent fall in the first two months, easing concerns about the slowing momentum in China’s economy.
     
  • AUD/USD recovers from multi-month lows with a 'Morning Star' formation raising scope for further upside.
     
  • Price action has edged above 5-DMA and we see scope for upside till 50-DMA at 0.71.
     
  • Major trend is definitely bearish. Price action is currently capped at 1H 110-EMA at 0.7056. Break above to see further gains.
     
  • Failure to break above 1H 110-EMA could see resumption of weakness. 
     
  • Today’s US personal spending details will be in focus after the GDP figures highlighted sluggish consumer spending.
