A decent recovery for U.S. tech stocks, stimulus talks, and a lack of fresh catalysts during the Asian session sent high-yielding currencies like the comdolls higher against the dollar today.

Can forex bulls keep up the momentum?

What to Watch: AUD/USD

AUD/USD 1-hour Forex Chart

AUD/USD has fallen by about 350 pips after finding resistance at the .7400 major psychological level.

As you can see, .7050 is a key inflection point for AUD/USD. Not only that, but Stochastic is already signaling the pair’s oversold conditions on the daily time frame.

With no top-tier reports on the docket, the investors’ attention will likely focus stimulus promises that could help boost even economies that are experiencing fresh waves of COVID-19 infections.

If London session traders take cues from their U.S. and Asian counterparts, then we could see .7050 hold as support and push AUD/USD to the .7100 handle before the week ends.

A much lower durable goods report from the U.S., however, could bring back fears of a slower global economic recovery and drag AUD/USD below the 100 SMA on the chart.

Keep in mind that AUD/USD has an average daily volatility of around 60 pips, so it’s also possible that we’ll see limited movements for the rest of the day if there are no fresh catalysts to rock the markets.
