FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Aussie dollar is giving away yesterday gains, trading in the 1.0475/80 region after hitting levels above 1.0515 earlier in the Asian session.
Today's bearishness has been accentuated after the Australian trade deficit widened to A$ 2,637 million during November from October's A$ 2,443 million and A$ 2,300 million expected.

According to analyst Adrian Foster at Rabobank, "Clearly weaker commodity prices and ongoing investment-induced demand for plant and equipment imports have weighed on the overall trade accounts in recent months".

The cross is now losing 0.25% at 1.0476 with the next support lying at 1.0466 (low Jan.7) ahead of 1.0465 (MA21d) and finally 1.0424 (MA10d).
On the flip side, a breakout of 1.0513 (high Jan.7) would aim to 1.0528 (76.4% of 1.0585-1.0345) and then 1.0535 (high Dec.19).
