November 1, 2022| Forex Market

AUD received some support after the RBA’s expected rate hike.

What to Watch: AUD/USD

AUD/USD 4-hour Forex Chart

AUD/USD 4-hour Forex Chart

In case you missed it, the Aussie found support from Asian session traders after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) raised its interest rates by 25 basis points as markets were expecting.

AUD/USD, which saw its downtrend take a chill pill in October, bounced from a mid-range level in the 4-hour time frame.

The pair is now trading closer to the .6450 zone that lines up with the chart’s 200 SMA.

Can AUD find enough buyers to test (and maybe break) the .6500 range resistance?

Uncle Sam will be printing its ISM manufacturing PMI later today.

If traders extend their risk-friendly trading theme, then AUD/USD could pop up to the .6500 previous resistance level.

On the other hand, a USD-friendly trading session could drag AUD/USD back to the mid-range levels closer to .6370 zone.
