AUSSIE: AUD/USD printed a new multi-month high Thursday, only to more than erase
these gains through the rest of the day as risk sentiment turned sour, dragging
the Aussie to the bottom of the G10 pile. Post-FOMC/month-end greenback weakness
and generally better then expected Aussie econ data allowed the pair to climb in
Asia hours. But a BBG report suggesting that China doubts whether it can strike
a long-term deal with the Trump admin changed the outlook, knocking the rate on
its head. Risk appetite remained weak, keeping a lid on the pair.
- AUD/USD is unch. at $0.6893. Below yesterday's trough & Oct 22 high at $0.6883
would bring the 100-DMA at $0.6850 into view. Meanwhile, bulls look for a lift
back above the key Sep 12 high of $0.6895 before setting their sights on the
61.8% retracement of the Jul 19 - Oct 2 decline/yesterday's peak at $0.6925/30.
- We have seen a few numbers out of Australia today. M'fing PMI surveys from
both CBA and AiG indicated deterioration, with the CBA gauge printing right at
the breakeven 50 level. CoreLogic House Px rose by 1.4% M/M vs. the prior +1.1%.
