AUD/USD Technical Analysis: AUD is proving key trendline support

content provided with permission by FXStreet

  • AUD/USD is currently chipping away at the trendline connecting the Nov. 13 and Nov. 27 low.
  • A close below that level would confirm that the pair has topped out at the 200-day MA on Dec. 3 and would open the doors for a deeper drop to 0.71.  
  • The 14-day relative strength index (RSI) has dropped into bearish territory below 50.00 and the 5-day and 10-day moving averages (MAs) are beginning to slope downwards. So, the pair could close below the key trendline support today.
  • The breakdown, however, may happen after a minor bounce as the RSI on both the hourly and 4-hour chart is reporting oversold conditions.
