AUSSIE: Aussie seeing some further weakness after the weak Trade Balance data
earlier in the session, AUD/USD last down 11 pips at 0.7852 but has come off
session lows of 0.7843. Still some way to go before next significant resistance
is hit, $0.7802 - Low Jan 3.
- AUD/NZD last down 18 pips at 1.0973.
- Post Trade Balance Westpac analysis Simon Murray writes "Overall, November's
deficit continues to disappoint after a steady run of surpluses through the
first three quarters of 2017. Q4's soft start largely relates to adverse price
movements, including a dip in the iron ore price, which since rallied through
December. Looking forward, positives remain in the LNG sector as exports lift
higher with additional capacity coming on stream and prices firm, while the
Asian region continues to be a solid source of demand for services exports."
