AUD/USD struggled for a clear direction Monday as participants assessed conflicting signals. A tailwind from firmer oil prices was counterbalanced by concerns surrounding simmering U.S.-China tensions and global coronavirus situation. The rage finished slightly below neutral levels.

  • AUD/USD trades flat at $0.7149, with bears looking at Aug 3 low of $0.7077 to start with. A break below that level would open up Jul 24 low of $0.7064. Bulls keep an eye on Aug 5/7 highs of $0.7241/43 and a rally above those levels would expose Feb 2019 high of $0.7284.
