The main trend is down according to the daily swing chart. A trade through .6770 will signal a resumption of the downtrend after two weeks of sideways price action.
The main trend will change to up on a trade through .6930. This is highly unlikely, but due to the prolonged move down in terms of price and time, the market is ripe for a closing price reversal bottom.

Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action and the current price at .6780, the direction of the AUD/USD the rest of the session on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the support cluster at .6770 to .6769. This was formed by a Fibonacci level and an uptrending Gann angle.
A sustained move over .6770 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move is able to generate enough upside momentum then look for the rally to possibly extend into the main 50% level at .6800. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the upside.
A sustained move under .6769 will signal the presence of sellers. This will put the AUD/USD on the weak side of an uptrending Gann angle.
If .6769 fails as support then look for the selling to possibly extend into the downtrending Gann angle at .6840. Crossing to the weak side of this angle will put the AUD/USD in a bearish position.
We’re looking for an acceleration to the downside on a trade through .6769, but we’d like to see a jump in selling volume on the move. Otherwise, it could fail.
