FXStreet (Guatemala) - Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet explained that the AUD/USD pair surged to its highest in 7-weeks, trading near the high set at 0.7335 in the American afternoon. Key Quotes: "The Aussie got a boost early Asia as the RBA decided to leave its monetary policy unchanged, giving a lift to the Aussie, as the Central Bank removed the previous reference to "at this meeting" signaling that rates will remain unchanged for some time now.

Technically, the 1 hour chart shows that the price holds well above a bullish 20 SMA, whilst the technical indicators consolidate in overbought territory, with no signs of turning lower. In the 4 hours chart, the technical readings are losing their upward momentum in overbought territory, but also fail to suggest a bearish corrective move, supporting a continued advance, moreover if the price holds now above the 0.7300 level.
