AUD/USD technical outlook

“Technically the pair is gaining short term bearish tone, with the hourly chart showing price below a flat 20 SMA and indicators grinding lower in negative territory, keeping the pressure to the downside”, say Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXStreet.

According to Bednarik, a price acceleration through 0.9330 “should anticipate a stronger decline, with further selling interest below 0.9300 exposing the 0.9260/70 price zone.”
