The Australian Dollar remained volatile during Friday, having touched the resistance cluster around 0.7060 and the support in face of the 0.70 major level. The AUD/USD remained within the descending channel pattern, but opened trade above the upper trend-line today, ignoring the nearest resistance. Although the Aussie is outperforming the US Dollar, there is still a chance the Antipodean currency can decline towards the weekly PP at 0.7021, thus, preserving the pattern.
Bullish market sentiment returned to its Thursday's level of 70%, compared to 72% on Friday. Meanwhile, the number of buy commands, however, edged two percentage points higher to 42%.
