Current trend

Yesterday, the trading instrument showed a moderate decline, despite the reduction in unemployment in Australia and the growth of the Chinese stock market.

As there is a lack of key economic releases, the movement of the pair is of technical nature. AUD remains under a long-term pressure from the US-China trade conflict. According to experts, its further escalation may reduce the country's GDP by 0.3% by 2022, which corresponds to a loss of USD 36 billion. In addition, today's speeches of the RBA officials were cautious, uninformative and could not break the pair's “bearish” trend.

Today at 14:55 (GMT+2), Redbook retail sales data will be published in the US, and at 19:30 (GMT+2) the speech by the Fed representative Raphael Bostic is scheduled.
