  • AUSD/USD has erased early losses to trade near key resistance. 
  • A rejection there could invite stronger selling pressure. 

AUD/USD is trading near 0.7643 at press time, having picked up a bid below 0.7610 early Monday. 

The pair is flirting with the lower end of a channel pattern represented by trendlines connecting Jan. 11 and Jan. 18 lows and Jan. 6 and Jan. 14 highs. 

A convincing move back inside the channel could yield another round of consolidation in the range of 0.7650-0.7750. However, a rejection at the current level, followed by a quick move under 0.7592 – the low of Thursday’s long-tailed candle – would imply a bearish reversal. That would expose the higher low of 0.7462 created on Jan. 21. 

On the higher side, 0.7764 (Jan. 27 high) is the level to beat for the bulls.
