AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Fails ahead of 200-hour SMA, back below 0.71 mark amid renewed USD buying

   •  The recent recovery move from 32-month lows stalls ahead of 200-hour SMA, with the pair quickly retreating around 40-pips from one-week tops and falling below 0.71 handle.

   •  Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have started losing positive momentum and thus, increase prospects for an additional retracement towards 100-hour SMA.

   •  A follow-through selling below the mentioned support is likely to reinforce the near-term bearish bias and accelerate the slide back towards retesting 0.7050-40 support area.
