Considering the pair’s failure to stay positive beyond 0.7200, coupled with anticipated dovish halt by the RBA, the quote may refrain from confirming the mentioned chart formation.

Even if 0.7100 is likely immediate support for the pair traders to watch, sellers should remain cautious unless the quote slips below 0.7065/60 support-zone, comprising June 10 high and July 24 low.

Alternatively, a sustained rise past-0.7125 will have to cross 200-bar SMA level of 0.7156 to challenge the July month’s top, also the highest since early-2019, near 0.7230.
