Current trend

During all last week the AUD/USD pair was falling.

The pair was pressured by poor macroeconomic statistics from Australia and growing demand for the USD. The Consumer Price Index in Australia fell to 2.1% against forecasted 2.4%. At the same time, the US Dollar was supported by the Interest Rate Decision from the US Fed as the regulator decided not to increase the interest rate in October but made it clear the increase could happen at its next meeting in December.

Today attention needs to be paid to Construction Spending, ISM and Markit Manufacturing PMI’s from the US, as well as the RBA Interest Rate Decision and its Rate Statement.
