On the other hand, the pair may also receive some support near multiple levels if the price started falling downside such as 0.6859, the confluence of a trend line and horizontal support level which might act as a strong support level keeping the price to stick around, ahead of 0.6800, the psychological number and then 0.6754, the low of November 29, 2019, may prevent the price from falling further as shown in the graph above.

Australia’s RBA Interest Rate Economic Release

From a fundamental point of view, the Reserve Bank of Australia release the stats concerning Interest Rates which might trigger some sort of stimulation for the interest rates to rise high or stay low. Should the RBA is hawkish about the inflationary outlook the interest rates are likely to increase and indicates a bullish market for the Aussie Dollar and vice versa.

Trade Idea

Considering the price behavior of the pair for the last couple of days, opening positions for a short interval of time may not be a good idea.
