Current trend

Since the beginning of this week, the pair is strengthening, despite the fall of the Chinese stock market and currency.

This week, no significant macroeconomic reports were published in Australia. The news background from the US was contradictory, and there were no fundamental reasons for the short-term strengthening of the pair. The fall of China's stock market should have led to a decrease in AUD and NZD, but this did not happen, indicating a strong oversold of commodity currencies. At the same time, pressure on AUD persists against the backdrop of the US trade war with China and the “hawkish” attitude of the Fed.

Today at 14:30 (GMT+2) the data on the producer price index will be published in the US. Tomorrow at 00:00 and 00:30 (GMT+2) speeches by representatives of the American and Australian regulators are scheduled. In addition, on Thursday at 14:30 (GMT+2), the release of data on the US labor market and consumer prices is scheduled. Investors expect a significant decline of the pair by the end of this week.
