    • AUD/USD closed above 100-DMA at 0.7778 on Thursday's trade. We see weakness only on retrace below.
       
    • The pair trades with a strong bullish momentum which keeps scope for further upside.
       
    • Momentum studies on weekly charts are also bullish. Price action has broken above weekly 20 SMA.
       
    • Next major bull target lies at 0.7862 200W SMA. Violation there eyes 61.8% Fib retracement at 0.7886.
       
    • On the downside, 100-DMA at 0.7778 is strong support and we see weakness till 200-DMA at 0.7694 on break below.
       
    • Violation at 200-DMA invalidates bullish bias.

    Support levels - 0.7778 (converged 20W SMA and 100-DMA), 0.7761 (5-DMA), 0.7694 (200 DMA)

    Resistance levels - 0.7813 (50% Fib retracement of 0.81250 to 0.75012 fall), 0.7817 (cloud top), 0.7875 (Oct 4 high)
