AUD/USD daily chart
On the daily chart, the pair has been under constant selling pressure, after making the high of 0.7599 on July 6. The bearish slopping line acts as a barrier for the bulls.
A sustained move below intraday’s low could bring back levels last seen in November 2020 back in the picture. The first in line target would be November 4 low at 0.7048.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator reads in the oversold zone. Any downtick in the MACD would amplify the selling toward the psychological 0.7000 mark.
Alternatively, if price moves higher then it could test the 0.7190 and the 0.7230 horizontal resistance levels.
Next, the market participants would aim for the August 18 high at 0.72771.
