AUD/USD continues its attempts to settle above the resistance at 0.7635 while the U.S. dollar is gaining ground against a broad basket of currencies.
The U.S. Dollar Index is currently moving towards the resistance at the 93 level. If the U.S. Dollar Index manages to settle above this level, it will head towards the next resistance at 93.20 which will be bearish for AUD/USD.
Today, foreign exchange market traders will focus on dynamics of commodity markets and general risk sentiment as no important economic reports will be released in the U.S. and Australia.
WTI oil made an attempt to settle below the $60 level after reports indicated that the container ship Ever Given, which had blocked the Suez Canal, was afloat. If market attention shifts from Suez Canal to problems with coronavirus in Europe, India and Brazil, oil may find itself under more pressure which will be bearish for commodity-related currencies including Australian dollar.
