What to Watch: AUD/USD
The RBA simply launched the transcript of their newest financial coverage huddle, revealing that central bankers weren’t as anxious as recommended of their official assertion.
Because it seems, policymakers are extra open to the thought of tightening financial coverage since they’re seeing inexperienced shoots within the Australian financial system. Nevertheless, they did reiterate they’d prefer to see extra indicators of wage acceleration.
This is likely to be sufficient to maintain AUD/USD above its rising development line assist on the hourly chart, particularly with the 100 SMA nonetheless above the 200 SMA to mirror bullish vitality.
In that case, the pair might nonetheless make its manner again as much as the most recent highs across the .7250 minor psychological mark.
Nevertheless, Stochastic appears keen to move south from the overbought zone, indicating a pickup in bearish strain. I’d keep looking out for a transfer beneath the .7100 deal with to see if a reversal from the climb is so as.
Additionally, headlines revealing that the stress between Russia and Ukraine is escalating would possibly carry extra risk-off flows to the combo, which is likely to be AUD bearish.
The U.S. PPI launch later within the New York session may very well be value watching as properly since robust underlying inflation would possibly remind merchants that some FOMC members are pushing for extra aggressive tightening.
