Current trend

This week, USD is strengthening against major competitors due to strong macroeconomic data, as AUD, being one of the weakest currencies is currently trading at 2-year lows.

On Wednesday, the pair was under significant pressure of key data on the US labor market, which were significantly better than the forecast. In addition, the Fed's “hawkish” rhetoric, a significant increase in 10-year bonds’ yields, as well as an increase in Factory orders and a record acceleration in the services sector provided USD growth.

The positive statistics of Australia was not able to influence the downward trend, since the country's economy is extremely vulnerable to the US-Chinese trade conflict, and the slowdown of the Chinese economy inevitably leads to a slowdown in the Australian one.

Today at 14:30 (GMT+2) a number of the most important indicators on the American labor market will be published. Given the strong preliminary values, market participants expect a further decline in the pair.
