Current trend

The pair continued to fall against the background of the publication of weak macroeconomic statistics in Australia. The volume of private sector lending decreased, which led to a decline in business activity. Today, the pair has overcome two significant resistance levels of 0.7760 and 0.7735.

However, the USD received strong support from the speech of the new chairman of the Fed, Jerome Powell. The head of the American regulator noted that the US economy demonstrates steady growth; inflation is approaching target levels, which is a very important argument for further tightening of monetary policy.

Today is saturated with a lot of important economic releases from the US, which is likely to cause strong volatility in the market. At 15:30 (GMT+2), the publication of statistics on private consumption expenditure and labor market data is expected. At 17:00 (GMT+2), market participants will follow the speech of the head of the Fed, as well as the output of statistics on business activity in the manufacturing sector and on inflation.
