AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Corrective slide tests ascending trend-line/50-hour SMA confluence support

   •  The pair erased a major part of its early gains to near one-month tops and has now dropped to test a short-term ascending trend-line support, held over the past three trading session.

   •  The mentioned support coincides with 50-hour SMA and hence, a sustained breakthrough might trigger some aggressive long-unwinding trade amid a sudden turnaround in risk-sentiment.

   •  Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have just drifted into negative territory but have managed to hold with a bullish bias on 4-hourly/daily charts, warranting caution for bearish traders.

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a convincing breakthrough the confluence support before tradres start positioning for any further intraday decline/near-term corrective slide.
