AUDUSD to close above 21-period SMA?

AUDUSD is currently trading below all three key simple moving averages (21, 50 & 100-period SMAs), indicating a potential downtrend.

The relative strength index (RSI) is at 46.48, underscores the markets state of uncertainty as investors await for more catalysts (RSI > 70 – oversold; RSI <30 – overbought).

Moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) is in the negative territory at -0.001590 as well as it’s the signal line (-0.001569), confirming a bearish trend.
