) -- With continued bearish momentum violating the 0.9752 level, the immediate risk for the AUD-USD pair remains toward the Oct. 6 low of 0.9620.

On continued weakness, the 0.9524 level, its rising trendline, will be targeted, followed by the Oct. 4 low of 0.9386. Its daily and weekly RSI are bearish and pointing lower suggesting further weakness.

On the other hand, AUD-USD may be hesitating. But it will have to break and hold above the 1.0312 and the 1.0441 levels to reduce its downside pressure and then target the Oct. 31 high of 1.0569. A breach here will turn focus to the Oct. 27 high of 1.0749.

All in all, the pair remains weak and vulnerable to the downside in the short term.
