AUD/USD daily chart

On the daily chart, the AUD/USD pair is accumulating below the 0.7750 key psychological mark. The formation of the Doji candlestick following the previous day’s huge bearish candle indicates indecisiveness in the market.  

Price correction below the 50-hour Simple Moving Average,  placed at 0.7710, could provide a hint at the continuation of the prevailing trend. In doing so, the first support would emerge at the May 4 low at 0.7674 followed by the April 14 low at 0.7633.

The receding Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator signals more downside toward the 0.7600 swing lows.

On the flip side, if price reverses, then the first hurdle could be located at the 0.7750 horizontal resistance level.

The next area of resistance could be the high of May 6 at 0.7788 followed by the previous day’s high of 0.7847.
