Since the beginning of November, the price has been moving within the broad upward channel but failed to consolidate within it and began to fall. Yesterday, due to the growing demand for USD, the instrument broke the key support level and the lower limit of the upward channel around 0.7275 and rushed lower. The price reached the next strong support at 0.7200 and was slightly corrected upwards. In a long-term period, AUD remains under pressure due to the maintaining the soft monetary policy of the RBA.
