AUD/USD Technical Analysis
After a strong rejection near the 0.7200 resistance, the Aussie Dollar declined below 0.7050 against the US Dollar. The AUD/USD pair traded close to the 0.7040 support level before it started a fresh upward move.
The pair traded as low as 0.7041 on FXOpen and later recovered above 0.7050. There was a break above the 0.7075 resistance and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The pair cleared the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.7097 high to 0.7041 low.
The recent upward move was strong as the pair even broke the 0.7080 resistance to open the doors for more gains. It is now trading nicely above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.7097 high to 0.7041 low.
Therefore, there are high chances of an upside break above the 0.7097 swing high. In the mentioned case, the pair could even break the 0.7100 and 0.7120 resistance levels.
On the other hand, if there is a downside correction, the pair might find support near the 0.7075 and 0.7060 levels. There is also a major bullish trend line in place with support at 0.7050 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD.

However, there is a strong resistance formed near the 0.6850 and 0.6860 levels. There is also a crucial contracting triangle in place with resistance at 0.6855 on the hourly chart. At the moment, the pair is trading close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6864 high to 0.6808 low.
In the short term, there could be a minor downside correction, but the 0.6835 and 0.6830 levels are likely to act as strong supports. The next key support is at 0.6820, below which the pair could move into a bearish zone.
On the upside, a convincing break above the 0.6860 resistance may open the doors for more gains. The next major resistance is near the 0.6875, above which the NZD/USD pair is likely to test the 0.6900 resistance level in the near term.
