AUDUSD – firm break above 0.80 eyes 0.8102/24 targets
The Aussie is firmly above 0.80 handle and hit new four-month high at 0.8038 on Friday, boosted by fresh weakness of the greenback on fears of US government shutdown.
Fresh extension of larger uptrend from 0.7500 (8 Dec low) focuses 0.8102 (20 Sep spike high) and key 0.8124 barrier (8 Sep peak, the highest since May 2015).
Overbought daily studies continue to warn, but without firmer bearish signals for now.
Broken psychological 0.80 barrier now acts as support and is expected to keep the downside protected and guard higher base at 0.7940 and rising 10SMA at 0.7921.
The pair is on track for the sixth straight weekly bullish close which is seen as strong bullish signal for further advance.
