AUD/USD Technical Analysis Aussie Dollar US Dollar

A low is formed near 0.6700 and the pair is currently consolidating losses. It tested the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6762 high to 0.6700 low.

However, there are many hurdles for the bulls on the upside near the 0.6725 and 0.6730 levels. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6725 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD.

The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6762 high to 0.6700 low. Therefore, the pair must break the trend line and settle above 0.6730 to start a decent recovery.

The next key resistance is near 0.6750, above which the pair might correct towards the 0.6800 resistance. Conversely, the pair is likely to continue lower below the 0.6700 support.

The next support on the downside is near the 0.6680 level, below which there is a risk of more losses towards 0.6650 or 0.6620 in the near term.

On the upside, there is a major hurdle forming near the 0.6500 level. Besides, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6500 on the hourly chart of NZD/USD.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6536 high to 0.6478 low is also near the 0.6507 level along with the 50 hourly simple moving average.

Therefore, the pair needs to climb above the 0.6500 and 0.6510 resistance levels to start a decent correction. Conversely, the NZD/USD pair could decline below the 0.6480 support area and continue lower towards the 0.6440 level in the near term.
