Pound climbs steadily as week comes to a close

Friday 23rd June
US Dollar

Last Week Market Recap

Monday 19th June 2017

Extended its previous week’s gains last week as Australia reported better than expected employment numbers, with mixed data from the United States. The week began with the rate making its weekly low of 0.7520 on Monday in the absence of any significant data from either country. The pair sold off on Tuesday after Australian NAB Business Confidence, which showed a reading of 7 versus a previous print of 13. The pair then gained sharply on Wednesday,      making its weekly high of 0.7634 after dismal U.S. CPI and Retail Sales data and despite a 25 bps hike in the Fed Funds Rate. The pair then consolidated on Thursday after Australian Employment Change showed an additional +42.0K jobs in May compared to an expected increase of +9.7K with the previous number upwardly revised from +37.4K to +46.1K. Also, the Australian Unemployment Rate declined to 5.5% from 5.7%. The rate extended its gains on Friday after lower than expected U.S. housing numbers. AUD/USD closed at 0.7615, with a weekly gain of +1.2%.
