Current trend

The AUD/USD pair grew by more than 80 points due to statements on monetary policy by Fed governor Jerome Powell. The Chairman said that at the moment the level of interest rates is "slightly below" the neutral level, which was perceived by investors as a signal of a possible slowdown in the rate of interest rates and caused an active sale of the US dollar. Meanwhile, in Australia, Q3 Building Capital Expenditure data were published: the figure fell by 0.5%, did not meet the forecast and affected AUD negatively. The decline New Homes Sales by 0.8% also did not support the course.

As for macroeconomic events that could affect the pair today, US Initial Jobless Claims and Personal Income and Spending data will be published at 15:30 (GMT+2). In addition, FOMC Meeting Minutes will be released at 21:00 (GMT+2).
