Currently, the 200-day moving average is a significant technical level acting as a barrier to upward momentum, with sellers demonstrating increased aggressiveness. The pair’s decline now poses a threat to breaking the 100-day moving average (red line) at 0.6550, which is a key level to monitor ahead of the daily close.

Additionally, buyers have lost their upward momentum, as price action fell back below the 50-hour moving average (yellow), leading to a shift in the near-term bias to a more neutral stance. Traders now face a wider technical range between the 100-hour moving average (0.6558) and the current 200-hour moving average (blue line) at 0.6535.

Given the absence of significant risk events, the outlined technical aspects will play a crucial role in guiding AUD/USD price action at the start of the week, particularly considering potential month-end flows in the coming sessions. Traders and investors should closely monitor these technical levels to assess the pair’s short-term direction and make informed trading decisions.
