AUD/USD 4-hour chart

On the 4-hour chart, the pair has been accumulating below the descending trend line from the high of 0.7892. The bearish sloping line acts as a defense for the bulls as price loses upside momentum while approaching the trend line for the last four sessions.

If price breaks below the session’s low at 0.7751, then the first stop would be located at Wednesday’s closing price of 0.7720.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator reads below the midline with a neutral stance. If it follows the downward trend, then it would bring the low of May 4 at 0.7674 back into the picture.

Alternatively, if price makes a sustained move above the 0.7760 mark, then it could aim for the previous day’s high at 0.7782. As it also coincides with an upside break of the downward sloping line,  that would negate the prevailing trend.

The next area of resistance for market participants would be traced back to Tuesday’s high at 0.7814 followed by the 0.7840 horizontal resistance level.
