The AUD/USD closed the month and the year positively. However, the price is still below the recent swing high of 0.6963. Meanwhile, the bullish engulfing bar in the immediate background threatens the recent rally.
The bullish crossover between the 50-day and 100-day moving averages is a positive sign for the pair. Moreover, the price is above the 20-day SMA as well. However, the pair is below the 200-day SMA, pointing lower.
Fundamentally, the AUD/USD price could be dominated by the US nonfarm payroll data due next week. Stronger data may dump the Aussie buyers.
