The Australian Dollar misbehaved on Monday, as it appreciated against the US Dollar instead of declining. The session high went over the 0.77 level, but the AUD/USD pair still stabilised at 0.7687, just over the weekly PP. Yesterday's rally is considered to be a setback, as the Aussie is expected to resume the bearish trend today. The weekly PP, now the immediate support, is unlikely to prevent the fall; therefore, trade should close around 0.7630. Furthermore, technical studies are now showing distinctly bearish signals, bolstering the possibility of the negative outcome.
Traders' sentiment remains unchanged, as 73% of them still hold long positions. The portion of buy orders edged up from 33 to 45%.
