AUD/USD's bullish cycle could be coming to an end as worries mount over the Australian economy, Covid-19 and a rebounding U.S. dollar.

It also reveals AUD/USD had the single worst daily drop compared with EUR/USD, USD/JPY and GBP/USD.

AUD/USD is at risk of a deeper drop towards the rising 30-day moving average, now at 0.7200, a break below which could see a much bigger fall to the 0.7000 psychological level.
