AUD/USD has succumbed to profit-taking as well, sliding back to the 0.9530 area after reaching 0.9601. at mid-morning in New York.

Expect short-term specs to cluster stops together around the 0.9520 level. That might be an idea entry point for patient buyers looking for the medium-term rally to resume. Reasonable stops can be placed in the 0.9450/70 area for a low risk trade.
