Another attempt at re-establishing the Australian Dollar downtrend against its US counterpart appears to be afoot. Prices broke below rising trend line support guiding them higher since late October, hinting that the dominant bearish bias established early in the year is being reasserted.

Initial support is in the 0.7161-0.7179 area, marking the bottom of the range from early November. A daily close below that opens the door for a test of the support shelf in the 0.7046-56 zone, followed by the October 26 swing bottom at 0.7018.

Alternatively, reversal back above the near-term chart inflection area in the 0.7256-68 region would invalidate the immediate bearish bias and expose another recently significant price band centered on the 0.73 figure. This is followed by the November 16 high at 0.7338.
