AUDUSD takes a tumble with option expiries making an impact

A decent turnaround for AUDUSD today 15 Feb Early USD supply helped the pair break through defence of option interest at 0.7950 and we saw 0.7967 Since then though some USD demand and softer gold price have given the sell-side an opportunity to drive the pair lower again and we've posted 0.7918 since, far outstripping USD gains elsewhere.
