) -- Having broken and held above the 1.0026 level, its Dec. 14 high, the Australian dollar-dollar currency pair (AUD-USD) is now holding slightly higher than its Nov. 11 high at 1.0084.

A convincing hold above that level will trigger further gains toward 1.0181, the pair's Nov. 5 high.

If the pair breaks through that level it will resume its long-term uptrend toward its psychological levels at 1.0300 and 1.0400.

Its daily relative strength index is bullish and pointing higher, suggesting further strength.

Alternatively, on pullbacks the Australian dollar-dollar pair's broken resistance at the 1.0026 level is expected to reverse roles and provide support.

There is also support at 0.9535, and a break through there would leave the pair targeting 0.9500 level and then 0.9461, the pair's Sept. 24 low.

In conclusion, further gains are expected for the Australian dollar-dollar currency pair, now that it has held onto most of its recovery gains from the 0.9535 level.
