  • Bulls failed to capitalize on the goodish intraday recovery move.
  • The positive momentum falters near 100-hour SMA post-US GDP.

The AUD/USD pair managed to rebound around 35-pips from daily lows in reaction to positive trade-related headlines, albeit struggled to extend the momentum further beyond 100-hour SMA.
On the 1-hourly chart, the pair already seems to have confirmed a short-term bullish break through a descending trend-channel, which supports prospects for some intraday dip-buying interest.
However, oscillators on 4-hourly/daily charts have struggled to recover from the negative territory or gain any meaningful positive traction on the 1-hourly chart, which failed to impress bulls.
Meanwhile, a sustained move beyond 100-hour SMA resistance near mid-0.6700s is likely to accelerate the recovery move towards the 0.6780 horizontal resistance en-route the 0.6800 handle.
Immediate support is now pegged near the 0.6720 region and is followed by the 0.6700 mark, below which the pair might head back towards retesting multi-year lows – around the 0.6680-75 region.
