AUD/USD - The Aussie is a currency that has become a favored vehicle of traders in recent years. After a multi-decade commodity boom brought the Australian Dollar to all-time highs against the US Dollar, traders were often attracted by the interest rate differential in the pairing. This allowed traders to earn rollover for being long AUD/USD, while also benefitting from a massive bull run seen in the pair. Of recent, tides have appeared to change as economic difficulties in China coupled with bear markets in metals and many commodities, have created a more opaque picture of the future of Australia's financial prospects.

AUD/USD Pivot Points

Australian Dollar and US Dollar News

Why The Australian Dollar Is Beating the GBP and Euro
The better than expected unemployment rate suggests that markets are too gloomy on the RBA, and I expect traders to unwind their bets on RBA rate cuts if the unemployment rate holds
Currency Swings in Thin Markets to Struggle for Follow-Through
Currency market swings registered in thin liquidity conditions are unlikely to find follow-through and may see swift reversals after participation returns to normal levels.
Australian Dollar Declines as Capex Data Fuels RBA Rate Cut Bets
The Australian Dollar tumbled against its US counterpart after Australia’s third quarter Capex data rallied RBA rate cut bets.
US Dollar May Rise on PCE Data, Thin Trade May Boost Volatility
The US Dollar may rise as the Fed’s favored inflation gauge hits a 10-month high. Kneejerk volatility may be amplified in thinning pre-holiday trade.
Aussie Dollar Little Changed After China Consumer Sentiment
The Australian Dollar did not show a substantial move in response to the China MNI Consumer Sentiment Indicator’s improvement and the implications for trade demand.
