AUD/USD Technical Analysis
The Aussie Dollar struggled to clear the 0.7500 zone against the US Dollar. As a result, AUD/USD started a major decline from the 0.7477 high and moved into a negative zone.
Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair traded below the 0.7400 and 0.7350 support levels. There was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the key upward move from the 0.7106 swing low to 0.7477 high.
It is now trading well below 0.730, the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours), and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours).
An immediate support is near the 0.7200 and 0.7195 levels. The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the key upward move from the 0.7106 swing low to 0.7477 high is also near the 0.7193 level. Any more losses might call for a move towards the 0.7120 level.
On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the 0.7265 level. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.7270 on the same chart.
The next major resistance is near the 0.7330 region and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours). A successful close above 0.7300 and 0.7330 might start a fresh increase in the near term.
Looking at EUR/USD, the pair is struggling to recover above 1.1750 and it might resume its decline. Similarly, GBP/USD remains at a risk of more downsides below 1.3650.
