Short-term recovery anticipated for AUDUSD

Managing Director / Technical Research Limited
New Zealand

Next Wednesday’s CPI number will be the decider for AUDUSD. Analysts are expecting a quarterly number of 0.4%–0.5% which would see the annual rate dropping to 1.1%, well under the Reserve Bank of Australia’s target of 2-3%. 

As such, a 25 basis point rate cut to 1.5% at the bank’s next policy review on August 2 looks to be a strong possibility. However, that’s already priced in and the CPI number would have to lowball the expectation to see AUDUSD sell off much more from here. More on the RBA’s predicament here: RBA may move goalposts on inflation target.
On the other side of the cross, the probability of a rate rise by the US Federal Reserve by year-end continues to creep up: now a bit above 50:50.

Came perilously close to being stopped out but just hung in there. No luck on this trade Max but I like the way you have tight stops. It suggests you have good money management skills.
