We have been all over the Aussie Dollar ( FXA , quote ) lower trade and today hits fresh multi-year lows, and technically gave out at the important .9280-.9250 support area.

In my view, this is why you want to be short.  There are many large investors and central banks holding Aussie dollars as a diversification and because it is one of the last AAA credits left.

Question, do you really want to be investing in a currency that is hinged to Chinese growth and spot prices for such things as coal and iron ore?

Once the gig is up there will be a run for the door.  The market is already pricing that in.
