AUD/USD: technical analysis 17.12.19

Current trend

On the 4-hour chart, the instrument keeps a negative dynamic. Now the pair is trying to consolidate below the support 0.68606. Assuming the pair’s ability to cross this level, the mark of 0.68512 and the 0.68359 can be targeted if holding short positions.

Alternative scenario

The rebound from 0.68606 and pullback above 0.68741 will be a signal for upward correction formation and let the price grow to the area of 0.68890 (the middle line of Bollinger bands). This level seems a key correction target that can activate a downward rebound. One may speak about upward movement continuation after the price consolidates above the resistance level of 0.68970. In this case, the next targets of buyers will be the area of levels 0.69275-0.69380.
