AUD/USD in a Double Bottom Attempt

To start the week, AUD/USD broke below a triangle consolidation, which was a bearish continuation signal in the 1H chart. This puts the 0.6940 low in sight with risk of extending lower to at least the low on the year around 0.69.

The 1H chart shows the market finding support at 0.6940 again, bringing price all the way back to the 0.7040 resistance area. I still consider the market bearish, but maybe more neutral-bearish now. Only a break above 0.7060 would validate a completed double bottom for me. Then, if price can hold above 0.70, I would start considering the bullish scenario.

Otherwise, I am holding a bearish bias based on the prevailing trend and the fact that the FOMC is relatively more hawkish than the RBA. A break below 0.6980 for me would be a bearish continuation signal to threaten the 0.6940 support again.
