AUD/USD slides as yuan weakness spills.......>

AUSSIE: AUD/USD slides as yuan weakness spills over into the Antipodean FX. A
softer than expected central fixing from the PBoC prompted USD/CNH to break
above CNH7.0000 and hit record highs. As a result, AUD/USD currently deals at
$0.6780. 21 pips worse off.
- The YtD low of $0.6741, touched during the Jan 3 flash crash, is now in play,
a breach of the level would mean that the rate is trading at its worst levels
since 2009. Bulls look to retake the trendline support-turned-resistance at
$0.6781, which would return focus to $0.6800.
