The AUD/USD pair broke lower on Tuesday, ending the day in the 0.7680 price zone. The greenback advanced in anticipation of the US Federal Reserve announcement on Wednesday, while the aussie suffered from dovish RBA Meeting Minutes.

The AUD/USD pair is under mild-pressure, poised to extend its slide. In the near-term, and according to the 4-hour chart, the risk is skewed to the downside, as the pair is developing below all of its moving averages, with the 20 SMA accelerating south below the longer ones. The Momentum indicator aims to recover within negative levels, while the RSI heads marginally lower at around 33. The pair has room to extend its decline toward the 0.7600 price zone on a break below 0.7675, the immediate support level.
