AUD/USD falls through the September low and continues to slide – ForexLive

Australian dollar under pressure

AUD/USD has been struggling for weeks but with today’s fresh fear, it’s broken the September low and is now down 33 pips to 0.7156.

Next is the August low of 0.7106, which was the height of the panic about covid in Australia and the series of lockdowns there.

What’s especially instructive is that the selling has continued even after October retail sales crushed expectations by rising 4.9% against the 2.5% consensus. That offered a brief reprieve but commodities are sagging broadly, including oil which is down $1.39 in New York.
