AUD/USD daily chart

On the daily chart, the AUD/USD pair is following the previous session’s shallow market movements. The pair continues to consolidate in a trading band of 0.7730-0.7770. The formation of Doji candlesticks reflects indecision among traders.  

A meaningful trading action will be observed after the symmetrical triangle breakout in either direction.  

AUD/USD is comfortably placed above the 100-day Simple Moving Average (SMA), which indicates short term positive bias. If price sustained above the intraday high at 0.7748, then it could touch the 0.7800 horizontal resistance level, which also coincides with the downward sloping line of the triangle.  

A break of the bearish slope line would prompt AUD/USD bulls to recapture May 12 high at 0.7847. In doing so, price would next navigate toward the May 10 high at 0.7892.

Alternatively, the receding Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) could drag price onto lower trajectory starting with 100-day SMA at 0.7725.  

Sellers would pull up their sleeves to retest the 0.7700 horizontal support level followed by the May 4 low at 0.7674.
