The Australian dollar challenged a long-term resistance level near 81 and then failed to develop a new uptrend. The retreat took the Australian dollar back to test the long-term support level near 7.75.

Australian exemption from the new U.S. steel tariffs had caused a new jump in the currency and raised the question of whether the Australian dollar could break above the long-term resistance level near 81.

Markets have focused on the sudden drops in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Shanghai composite index. For many, the Dow fall had a benign inevitably — no need to panic. The fall in the Shanghai market, however, was seen as a warning sign, but it could actually turn into a fresh opportunity.
