AUD/USD: technical analysis 17.01.20

Current trend

On a 4-hour chart, the instrument is correcting up from the lower line of the Bollinger Bands (0.68830) but is yet to cross the 0.69037 resistance, which coincided with the middle line of Bollinger Bands. The decisive break of this level is needed to indicate the upward trend resumption. In this case, the buyers will aim for the level of 0.69275-0.69330 resistance area.

Alternative scenario

Failure to conquer the 0.69037 mark seems fetching the AUD/USD to 0.68830 support. The breakdown of this level will be a signal for downward trend resumption and let the price fall to the area of 0.68665-0.68569 support.
