The Australian dollar softens as investors shun risk assets. The pair is looking to hold onto its recent gains after rallying above June’s high at 96.60. However, short-term price action may struggle as there is no sign of committed buying yet. A break below 96.70 has forced leveraged buyers to bail out. The daily support and psychological level of 95.00 is a major area to gauge buying interest. A bounce will need to lift 96.40 before it could take hold. Failing that, a bearish breakout would deepen the correction below 94.00.
