NFP and trendline: This is just a follow up with the recent updates on AUD/USD monitoring its attack at resistance in the 1.0390-1.0410 zone. Before the NFP, there was a crack to the upside, but it retreated ahead of the key release down to a rising trendline seen in the 1H AUD/USD chart. After the better-than-expected data (171K vs. 123K forecast), the pair briefly fell below the trendline, but quickly bounced up to the 1.04 area again. With the focus back here, will the market finally break out to the upside for next week?

    The 1.04 continues to hold, and the market fell below the 1.0350 support pivot as the week winds down. - Fan
