AUDUSD falls after RBA stayed unchanged

The price moved lower after repeated upside rejection under 200SMA (0.7697) with formation of 10/200SMA death-cross, putting the pair under additional pressure.
Negative sentiment for Australian dollar comes also from wide expectations that US Federal Reserve will increase interest rates in December.
