FXStreet (Guatemala) - AUD/USD has got off to a shaky start as full markets return. Risk-off is the theme with China printing poor manufacturing data to start us off and investors have been running for cover. The antipodean's that are holding a yield advantage where money was parked over the holidays have been abandoned, most notably in AUD/JPY (down 200 pips), a good barometer for risk mood. We are now down over a cent in AUD/USD ahead of FOMC minutes mid week and Nonfarm Payrolls at the end of the week. AUD/USD levels Technically, we dropped like a stone below the 20 DMA at 0.7233 today and now eroding the 100 DMA at 0.7173. The major is directly offered below the 200 DMA at 0.7411 on the wide. The 3-month uptrend at 0.7086 should be respected as well as the 0.7017 November low and the September low is at 0.6940 for the downside levels. For more information, read our latest forex news.
