The Australian dollar was hit hard alongside stocks as Trump’s new suggested tariffs rocked markets quite hard. How low can it go? The Australian calendar is quite light, leaving room for trade to dominate the scene once again. Here are the highlights of the week and an updated technical analysis for AUD/USD.

The fall below this line proved its strength. 0.7610 was the peak of an upwards move in late May. 0.7560 is the next level to watch after it was the recovery level in early May. 0.7520 was a swing low in late May. 0.7470 was an initial low in late April and it is followed by 0.7410, an old line from 2017. Further down, 0.7375 is notable. 0.7325 was a support line back in May 2017 and is now coming into play. 0.7250 served as a pivotal line in early 2017 and the last line to watch is 0.7160 that was the swing low back then.
