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.
