  • AUD/USD has held strong trendline support at 0.7425 and edged higher, bias remains bearish.
     
  • The pair is trading 0.14% higher on the day at 0.7450 at the time of writing.
     
  • Focus now on Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) for the latest Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes to judge the RBA's stance on the Australian economy.
     
  • The central bank has been firmly planted in wait-and-see mode, and is expected to remain as such for the indeterminate future.
     
  • Technical indicators are biased lower. Price action rages below major moving averages.
     
  • Break below trendline support at 0.7425 will see further weakness. Next major bear target lies at 0.7328 (May 8 low).
