AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Trying to form a base near 100-hour SMA, upside seems limited

   •  The pair continued with its struggle to decisively break through the 0.7200 round figure mark, albeit was seen trying to form a firm base at 100-hour SMA.

   •  Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have been gaining some positive momentum and hence, support prospects for additional intraday up-move.

   •  However, neutral/bearish oscillators on 4-hourly/daily charts clearly suggest that the near-term downward trajectory might still be far from over.

   •  Hence, any attempted moves beyond the mentioned handle seem more likely to get sold into near 100-day SMA resistance, currently near the 0.7220 region.
