AUD / USD – Technical Analysis – Heading Down Quickly

Having enjoyed a solid run up since the beginning of June, The AUD / USD is starting to show clear signs of tiring and easing off considerably.  It has clearly fallen out of favour over the last few weeks.  Throughout the last few months, its retracements have been in the order of approximately 2 cents however the present sell is getting close to twice that as it drifts down towards 1.0200.  The break through the 1.04 level was a telling blow and it then met reasonable resistance there.
