Traders will be zeroed in on the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) when it announces its interest-rate decision later today. Given that the market is pricing in an 80% chance of easing, the eventual release of the rate statement should the pair free from its dull motion observed overnight. On the note that RBA does decides to cuts rates at 25bp, it is expected of AUDUSD to test and break 0.7800 support level. Alternatively, should RBA keeps rates unchanged, AUD is likely to squeeze to 0.8000 resistance mark.
