Information is not investment advice

On the D1, AUD/USD formed an inside bar on Monday. As long as the pair is staying above the support at 0.6505, it has a chance to rise above 0.6575 (23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the 2020 decline). The targets are at 0.6620 (downtrend resistance line) and 0.6660 (major support of 2019 and now resistance, 38.2% Fibo).
The decline below 0.6500 will reopen the way down to 0.6450.
