AUDUSD Monthly – August ended with a bullish pin bar

The last days of August undoubtedly belonged to the demand, as we will notice on the monthly chart above. An bullish pin bar appeared, suggesting further strengthening of the Australian currency against the USD.

AUDUSD Daily – price broke out from the downward channel and formed a bullish engulfing pattern

When we look at the daily chart – here too there are signs of a bullish bias on this pair. After staying in the downtrend channel for a while, the price broke through the resistance of the channel and headed north.

Last week, after J. Powell’s speech at the symposium in Jackson Hole, the Friday candle formed a bullish engulfment, and today we observe the breakout from this formation. There is an upward divergence on the MACD oscillator.

The nearest demand zone starts at the level of 0.7380 and it may be the first target for buyers.

Today (01.09) 14:30 ADP employment data, the so-called “small payrolls” – and on Friday at the same time the most important event for the financial markets of the week – payrolls. We can undoubtedly expect increased volatility on the dollar pairs, which should be taken into account in trading plans.
