The Aussie dollar traded lower during the past couple of weeks against the US dollar and tested the 0.7600-0.7700 support area. There is a major bearish trend line formed on the weekly chart, which is suggesting that the AUDUSD pair is still under pressure and if it managed to climb from the current levels then it might struggle to break higher. There is one more aspect, as the highlighted trend line is also coinciding with the 23.6% fib retracement level of the last leg from the 0.8794 high to 0.7620 low.
Intraday Support Level – 0.7760
Intraday Resistance Level – 0.7890
Overall, as long as the pair is below the stated trend line it might continue trading lower.
A break below the same could take the pair towards the 0.80 level.
If the AUDUSD pair moves lower, then initial support is around the 0.7700 level. A break below the same might set the pair for a test of the 0.7620 swing area. The weekly RSI is around the 30 level, which can be considered as a short-term warning sign.
GOLD suffered heavy losses during the past several weeks after testing the $1300 resistance area. GOLD buyers failed to take it higher and since then it has moved lower. The 100-week moving average also acted as a catalyst for GOLD which protected upside. It is now heading back towards a broken bearish trend line on the weekly chart. Yesterday, GOLD sellers managed to clear the 50% fib retracement level of the last leg from the $1131 low to $1306 high, which is a worrying sign in the near term. More losses are possible if sellers gain control.
Intraday Support Level – $1205
Intraday Resistance Level – $1220
Selling rallies around the $1220-30 levels line look like a good option.
A break above the same might call for more gains moving ahead.
On the downside, the highlighted trend line might act as a support for GOLD moving ahead.
