    FXStreet (Guatemala) - AUD/USD is currently trading at 0.7077 with a high of 0.7179 and a low of 0.7054.

    AUD/USD dropped again overnight in Asia where all the action seems to be happening with China as a catalyst. There was a sharp devaluation of the Yuan yesterday to kick off the supply and then the Chinese Ciaxin services data was also poor igniting further bearishness in the Aussie.
