AUD/USD four-hour chart

The spot is under selling pressure below the 0.6890 level and the 200 SMA on the four-hour chart. The market is now consolidating the recent losses. Sellers want to break below 0.6840 to reach the 0.6800 handle. However, as the consolidation goes on, if bulls retake the 0.6890 level, it can lead to a correction up potentially reaching the 0.6920 and 0.6935 level, according to the Technical Confluences Indicator
