During the week, the Aussie broke above the 100-day EMA at 0.7081 and is now trading between the latter and the 200-day EMA at 0.7149, which changes the bias of the major currency to neutral to the upside. It is worth noting that once AUD/USD broke above 0.7067, the inverted head and shoulders neckline confirmed the chart pattern with 0.7440 as the first profit target.

However, on its way to the upside, AUD/USD’s first resistance would be the 11th Aug high at 0.7136. Once broken, the next stop would be the 200 day EMA, followed by the May 5 high at 0.7266.
