AUD/USD Daily Chart – Head & Shoulders Breakout in Play
The US Dollar may be setting the stage to extend gains against the Australian Dollar. AUD/USD has confirmed a breakout under a bearish Head & Shoulders chart formation after taking out the neckline around 0.6893. Immediate support is the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level at 0.6781. Breaking under this price could open the door to extending losses toward the 61.8% level at 0.6547. Meanwhile, a bearish Death Cross between the 20- and 50-day Simple Moving Averages (SMAs) is likely on the horizon.
