AUD.USD extended its losses on Monday, likely due to the RBAs less hawkish stance after it decided to keep its interest rate unchanged at 4.35% on Tuesday. Markets were anticipating more hawkish stance, fueled by last week’s inflation data, which exceeded expectations.

A slow start to the week for financial markets as investors await the key economic data releases later in the week.  Wall St was mixed, with the Nasdaq closing +0.3%, the S&P 500 flat and the Dow Jones -0.2% on the day. while  U.S. 10-year yields were unchanged
