AUDUSD The Australian Dollar breakdown looks like the real deal, and a substantial shift in sentiment favors continued AUDUSD weakness.

Trade Implications – AUDUSD:There are now more than two retail traders long the Australian Dollar for every one that is long; net positions are at their most extreme since June.

Yet until crowds switch direction, we’ll remain in favor of further AUD declines.
