AUD/USD daily chart
Technically speaking, AUD/USD has come under selling pressure after testing the high of 0.7478 at the beginning of September series (September 3). The price took shelter near the 0.7220 with multiple bottom formations. Now, if price breaks above the descending trendline from the mentioned high level, it could meet the 50-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at 0.7325 as the first upside target.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) trades below the midline with a bullish crossover. Any uptick in the MACD would open the gates for the high made on September 14 at 0.7374 followed by the 0.7400 horizontal resistance level.
Alternatively, if price reverses direction, then it could retrace to the previous day’s low of 0.7249. AUD/USD bears would then march toward the 0.7220 horizontal support level.
A daily close below the mentioned level could trigger a fresh round of selling toward the 0.7150 horizontal support level.
