Australian Dollar Forecast: Key AUD/USD Levels to Watch, Risk of Topping Out

Australian Dollar Forecast: Key AUD/USD Levels to Watch, Risk of Topping Out

Australian Dollar Analysis and Talking Points

AUD/USD | Risk appetite has seemingly improved throughout the week amid policy relief from the Federal Reserve, which in turn has seen US equities soar. That said, this may also reflect a front running of month and quarter end portfolio rebalancing, where expectations are for notable inflows in equity markets given its underperformance relative to bonds over the quarter. However, we remain wary of this bounce and believe this is typical of a somewhat bear market rally. In turn, we see risks remain skewed to the downside for the Australian Dollar as its corrective uptick is faded with a failure to consolidate above 0.6000 confirming as much.
