AUD/USD:Clear signs of another short-term top emerging with the market stalling out by fresh post-float record highs at 1.0185 several days back, and then reversing course to end a sequence of consecutive daily higher lows. The latest break back below the 20-Day SMA further encourages bearish outlook from here, and we will look for a 2-day close below the 50-Day SMA (could be today) for additional bearish confirmation. From here the risks are for declines towards critical support by 0.9650, below which will really accelerate. Any intraday rallies should be very well capped below 1.0000 on a close basis.
