AUD Price Forecast: Aussie Dollar Remains Vulnerable

AUD/USD ANALYSIS & TALKING POINTS

  • Soft Chinese CPI and safe haven demand for USD weighs on AUD.
  • US data under the spotlight later today.
  • New yearly lows looming for AUD/USD?

AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

The Australian dollar stays subdued close to yearly lows after the Fed’s higher for longer narrative gains traction. US CPI showed some stickiness in core metrics although rate hike expectations did not change much from a Federal Reserve standpoint. Ongoing geopolitical tensions between Israel-Palestine in the Middle East could see riskier currencies like the AUD come under pressure in favor of safe haven currencies like the US dollar.

Weak Chinese data this morning (see economic calendar below) has limited Aussie upside via the CPI report highlighting the nation’s economy I still struggling despite stimulus measures by the Chinese government.

Later today, US specific factors will be in focus once again from Fed speak and the Michigan consumer sentiment release.
