AUD/USD

The last few months have seen the AUDUSD decline considerably from above 0.80 to it present trading levels below 0.76.

In the last week it has continued to decline from a two week high near 0.7650 back down below 0.76 again.  It is quickly approaching the five month low just above 0.75 again and this level is the next most likely support might kick in around 0.75 which has supported it numerous times during this year.

As I type this, it is currently trading around 0.7562.
