However, the pair struggled to gain traction above the 0.7220 resistance and topped near the 0.7221 level. The pair corrected below the 0.7200 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 0.7146 low to 0.7221 high.

On the downside, there are many key supports near the 0.7170 and 0.7180 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 0.7146 low to 0.7221 high is also near the 0.7183 level.

Besides, the 50 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the 0.7180 level. Therefore, the pair is likely to bounce back if it declines towards the 0.7170 or 0.7180 support levels.

On the upside, there is a crucial resistance near 0.7200 and a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at 0.7210 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD. A close above 0.7210 and 0.7220 is needed for more gains in the near term. If not, the pair may slide back towards 0.7140.

However, the pair struggled to gain momentum above the 0.6780 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, there is a crucial bearish trend line with resistance near 0.6780 on the hourly chart.

Finally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6848 high to 0.6727 low is near 0.6787. Therefore, it won’t be easy for buyers to clear the 0.6780 and 0.6800 hurdles in the near term.

As long as the pair is trading below the 0.6780 and 0.6800 resistance levels, there is a risk of a fresh decline towards the 0.6750 or 0.6730 support levels in the near term.
