AUD/USD daily chart
On the daily chart, the pair has been under selling pressure from the high of 0.7794 made on June 7 and touched the lows of 0.7288 on July 21.
The descending trendline from the above high acts as a robust resistance for the pair. The trendline coincides with the break of the 20-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at 0.7740.
That said, if price breaks and sustains above the intraday session, then it could move toward the 0.7400 key psychological mark
A daily close above the 0.7400 level would further push AUD/USD higher to the high of July 16 at 0.7444.
The oversold Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator with stretched selling opportunities, makes bulls looking forward to further upside movement.
In doing so, the bulls would plan to retest the 0.7480 horizontal resistance level.
Alternatively, any downtick within the MACD could drag the pair toward the 0.7350 horizontal price . AUD/USD bears would aim to succeed in the low of July 21 at 0.7288.
The next area of support emerges at the extent last seen on November 23, 2020, at 0.7264.
