MARKET DEVELOPMENT – AUD/USD Drops, Crude Oil Prices Choppy on OPEC

DailyFX 2019 FX Trading Forecasts

Crude Oil: As to be expected, it has been a volatile session thus far for crude oil futures amid the bi-annual OPEC meeting. Brent crude futures had hit highs of $63.84 early in the European session following reports that OPEC may consider deeper cuts of 500kbpd. However, deeper cuts had later been rebuffed by Saudi official sources who noted that Saudi Arabia are not advocating deeper cuts. As is usually the case, oil prices are likely to swing back and forth amid the flurry of OPEC source reports. (full report)

*3-month correlation with Brent crude oil

AUD: The RBA’s unease over subdued household consumption, which had been highlighted in the Q3 GDP report, looks to have spilled into Q4 with the October retail sales dropping to 0%, missing expectations of 0.3%. Consequently, the Australian Dollar is among the underperformers in the G10 complex and thus looks to make a retest of 0.68 with a move lower in AUD/NZD also likely to be favoured.
