Matías Salord explained that the technical indicators show no clear signals for the near future. "A consolidation during the Asian session seems likely, probable in the 0.7540/0.7500 range. A confirmation on top of 0.7550 would strengthen the Aussie for a stronger recovery while to the downside, a break under 0.7490 would expose April lows at 0.7470."  Further out, analysts at Commerzbank explained that the longer term outlook negative: "The repeated failure in the 0.7750/0.7836 region, turns the market from the topside of a converging range and leaves it heading to the base of the range offered by the 2016-2017 uptrend at 0.7267."
