Current trend

Today the pair strengthened after the publication of strong labour market data from Australia.

At the same time, in the medium term the pair will remain under pressure amid monetary policy tightening in the US, falling commodities prices, weak GDP growth in Australia, slowing Chinese economy and falling Chinese imports from Australia.

In addition, investors expect further monetary policy easing in Australia.

Tomorrow attention needs to be paid to US data on the Producer Price Index and Retail Sales for November that expected to show an increase in indices. Forecasts realisation will pressure the pair.
