AUD/USD slips off 0.80 as the RBA sits on its hands

The Reserve Bank of Australia did not change its interest rate. This was no surprise. However, as with the July decision, they also refrained from making any changes to their forecast.

This weighs on AUD/USD. Alongside a small correction in favour of the US dollar, AUD/USD is slipping under 0.80, a line it had struggled to conquer.

If we look back to that July decision, it was followed by a very different message from the meeting minutes. The RBA discussed eventually raising rates to a level of 3.5%, 2% above the current 1.5%. Will the meeting minutes provide hawkishness once again? Is this fall just a temporary correction on the way up?

Aussie/USD trades at 0.7980 at the time of writing. It had already reached 0.8065, so this is a significant downfall. Support awaits at 0.79, followed by 0.7835, which was the previous cycle high.

Resistance is at the recent high of 0.8065, followed by 0.8150 and 0.83.
