AUD/USD chart - Trading View 

AUD/USD trades rangebound in the Asian session, bias remains bearish.

Disappointing China PMI and risk-off amid escalating Sino-U.S. trade war weigh.

China’s official manufacturing data dropped beneath market consensus, slipped to 49.4 versus 49.9 forecasts and 50.1 prior.

Non-manufacturing PMI also lagged behind 53.5 market consensus to match 54.3 prior.

Further, China unwilling to give up its principles, says it is ready with a plan to limit rare earth exports to the US if needed.

Major trend in the pair is bearish, recovery attempts capped at 20-DMA. Test of 78.6% Fib at 0.6862 likely.

Focus on US Core PCE Price Index and UoM Consumer Sentiment data due for release later today for further impulse.
