Current trend

This week, the pair demonstrates moderate growth amid the escalation of the China-US trade conflict, as well as the release of weak statistics on the real estate market and the unexpected drop in Services PMI in the US.

On Tuesday, the PRC government announced a program to stimulate domestic demand and its own economy to prevent its recession due to new US import duties. At the same time, it became known that Washington would allocate USD 12B to help farmers affected by Chinese retaliatory duties. It is noteworthy that the PRC tariffs touched products from those American regions that supported President Trump at the elections. By doing so the Chinese authorities are trying to deprive the current president of direct supporters. Beijing's actions have supported the pair, as China is Australia's most important economic partner.

June Durable Goods Orders data is due today at 14:30 (GMT+2). The US Census Bureau expects an increase in the index, which will contribute to a moderate strengthening of USD. In addition, traders expect the publication of statistics on the US labor market.
