AUD & NZD edge higher as Greenback remains at a 12 month low

Friday 21st of July

Australian Dollar:

During a week of daily gains for the Australian dollar, yesterday’s session proved no different with the domestic unit briefly capturing fresh highs when valued against its US Counterpart. In what’s likely to frustrate policy makers who have repeatedly called out a stronger AUD as a major headwind towards a quicker transition away from a commodity, export-driven growth path, highs overnight of 0.7987 see’s the currency holding levels above valuations not seen in more than two years.   Whilst data flows remain light today, the 80 US cents barrier remarkably only now sits a stone’s throw away as the Australian dollar currently buys 79.57 US Cents.

Last Week Market Recap

Monday 17th July 2017

Gained sharply last week as the Aussie reacted to a rally in iron ore and crude oil prices, with very little significant economic data from Australia. The week began with the rate making its weekly low of 0.7585 on Monday in the absence of any significant economic data from either country. The pair continued higher on Tuesday after the Australian NAB Business Confidence index printed at 9 versus a previous reading of 8 upwardly revised from 7. The rate extended its gains on Wednesday after Fed Chair Yellen’s testimony before the U.S. Congress. The rally continued Thursday as the United States reported mixed PPI data, while iron ore and crude oil prices soared. The pair then made its weekly high of 0.7833 on Friday after lower than anticipated U.S. CPI and Retail Sales numbers. AUD/USD closed at 0.7824, with an impressive gain of +3.0% from its previous weekly close.
