CPI In The Spotlight


The Aussie dollar outperforms at the margin as participants look ahead to the release of Australia's CPI data for Q3. Upticks in AUD crosses coincided with a jump in 3-Year ACGB yield, albeit AUD/USD implied overnight volatility remains subdued. Spot AUD/USD last trades at $0.7507, 6 pips higher on the day.

  • Bulls look to a rally above Oct 21 high of $0.7546, which would bring the 50% retracement of the Feb - Aug sell-off at $0.7557 into play. Conversely, losses past Oct 22 low of $0.7454 would allow bears to set their sights on Oct 18 low of $0.7379.
  • Looking further afield, RBA's Debelle & Bullock will testify to lawmakers tomorrow, while Australian retail sales & PPI will hit the wires on Friday.
  • This comes after AUD/USD traded with a positive bias Tuesday, as the Aussie drew support from firmer oil & iron ore prices.
