USD/INR daily chart

On the daily chart, the USD/INR pair is hovering   in the vicinity of the previous day’s closing at 73.26. The mentioned price level is seen as a critical level with the formation of multiple bottoms in the 73.20 area.

If the price takes the consideration of the multi support as stated above, then it would seek the first upside target at the May 11 high at 73.52. The descending trendline from the highs of 75.63 acts as a defense for the USD/INR bulls.  

A break above the trend line would prompt fresh buying opportunities towards the 73.95 horizontal resistance level, which would provide additional strength to the bulls to take over the April 30 high at 74.22.

On the flip side, if the price sustains below the 73.20 level, then it could touch the levels last seen in March, with the first stop at the March 31 low at 73.09. It could further retest the March 30 low   at 72.73.

The negative Moving Average Convergence (MACD) indicator could help bring the 72.50 horizontal support level back into the picture.
