Different moving averages (MAs) help us better identify trends across multiple time frames. We use 3 basic MAs to find out which sentiment dominates each horizon. The purple line represents the monthly , the green line the 6 months and the yellow line the annual moving average. According to the monthly MA, AUD/USD is in bearish sentiment, after falling below it. As we can see in the chart below, the 6 months and annual MAs are still in bullish sentiment. In the event of a decline, the 6-month MA can be an important support for the exchange rate.

Basic technical analysis still supports longer-term bullish sentiment, as the exchange rate creates higher lows and higher highs. This pair is in a short-term correction. However, we can clearly see a bullish divergence between the market price and the RSI. At the beginning of the month, the volumes were also above average. The AUD/USD is currently close to an important psychological level of 0.7600 , which could be a support for this pair. In the event of a further decline, the longer-term moving average, the psychological level of 0.7400 and the Fibonacci retracement level of 23.60% could be a strong support for bulls.
