On a four-hour scale, the aussie bulls are facing barricades around the 50% Fibonacci retracement (which is placed from June high at 0.7283 to July 14 low at 0.6707) at 0.6983. This has pushed the asset into a charted territory. The asset will consolidate in a 0.6890-0.7045 range ahead.
The 200-period Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at 0.6930. Also, the 50-EMA at 0.6952 is overlapping with the asset prices, which signals a consolidation ahead.
Adding to that, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) (14) has shifted into the 40.00-60.00 range, which indicates that the asset is awaiting a potential trigger for a meaningful move.
A decisive move above the six-week high at 0.7047 will send the major towards the round-level resistance of 0.7100, followed by May 31 high at 0.7204.
Alternatively, a downside break of the above-mentioned consolidation, which is in a 0.6890-0.7045 range will drag the asset towards a 23.6% Fibo retracement at 0.6823. A slippage below 23.6% Fibo retracement will trigger the downside risk to July 5 low at 0.6761.
