The Aussie Dollar

The Aussie Dollar closed in the green for the 3rd consecutive day of trading but struggled to trade at the highs of last week.


The AUD benefited from a jump in the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) preferred inflation gauge before the global central banks portrayed tapering moves. However, the bulls are recently cautious ahead of the speech from RBA Deputy Governor Guy Debelle and preliminary readings of the US Q3 GDP coming up.


As investors looked past upbeat Australian consumer inflation figures, the AUD/USD pair witnessed an intraday turnaround on Wednesday and retreated nearly 50 pips from the daily high. A slight deterioration in the global risk sentiment – as depicted by a pullback in the equity markets – benefitted the safe-haven USD and drove flows away from the perceived riskier AUD.
