The nearest support remains out of reach at 0.7263, while the immediate resistance weakened with the Bollinger band leaving the cluster.

Meanwhile, technical indicators and speculation on Saudi Arabia cutting oil production are bolstering the Australian Dollar's possibility to erase yesterday's losses today.
