AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Bulls likely to struggle near bearish flag resistance, around mid-0.7200s

   •  Despite last week's sharp retracement from multi-month tops, the pair showed some resilience near 50-day SMA and staged a goodish rebound from near one-month lows.

AUD/USD daily chart

   •  The steady recovery over the past three trading sessions has been alongside a short-term ascending trend-channel, forming a bearish flag pattern on the 1-hourly chart.

1-hourly chart

   •  Technical indicators on hourly charts have been gaining traction but have already lost the positive momentum on the daily chart, warranting some caution for bullish traders.

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a sustained move beyond the trend-channel resistance, currently near mid-0.7200s, before positioning for any further near-term gains.

   •  Alternatively, weakness below the trend-channel support would mark a fresh bearish breakdown and indicate that the recent positive momentum might have already ended.
