AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Upside is likely to remain capped near a support-turned-resistance


  • Bulls failed to capitalize on Friday’s goodish recovery move.
  • Weakness below 0.6800 needed to confirm any further slide.

The AUD/USD pair struggled to capitalize on the previous session's goodish recovery move and remained depressed through the early European session on Monday.
 
Given last week's sustained weakness below 100-day SMA, coinciding with over one-month-old ascending trend-line, the bias remains tilted in favour of bearish traders.
 
Meanwhile, mixed technical indicators on daily/hourly charts warrant some caution before placing any aggressive directional bets despite renewed trade optimism.
 
Hence, it will be prudent to wait for some follow-through selling below the 0.6800 handle before positioning for any subsequent slide back towards the 0.6770 region.
 
The downward momentum could further get extended towards challenging the 0.6700 round-figure mark with some intermediate support near the 0.6740-30 region.
 
On the flip side, the mentioned confluence support, currently near the 0.6835-40 region, now seems to act as immediate resistance and is closely followed by the 0.6875-80 supply zone.
