AUDUSD

The pair was seen to further go lower in the following days after it broke down from a major support line. Australia had been an old ally of the United States and had been a key player for U.S. influence in the Asia Pacific. However, with the changing dynamics of geopolitics, Australia’s reliance on the United States had been damaging the country. This was following the trade war between the U.S. and China wherein the later was Australia’s largest trading partner. In March 2019, Australia entered its first recession in 27 years following the slowdown of trade partnership between the country and China amid the ongoing trade war between the two (2) largest economies in the world. Aside from China and the United States, Australia was also divided between the European Union, and its former colonial master, the United Kingdom. Histogram and EMAs 13 and 21 will continue its downward movement.
