Aussie is down nearly 1% since Asian opening

Daily momentum is breaking into negative territory, stochastic and RSI are heading south and adding to negative signals.
Bears pressure pivotal support at 0.6860 (Fibo 61.8% of 0.6754/0.7032, reinforced by 55DMA), loss of which would confirm reversal and open targets at 0.6838 (higher base) and 0.6825 (100DMA / top of thin daily cloud).
