A short report today as I'm running a little behind schedule. But the key message is AUD has lost some ground since yesterday, which isn't surprising after such a strong run higher. Economic data out of China yesterday was strong with industrial production, retail sales and GDP all appearing to have bottomed out.
Ahead today is monetary policy minutes from the RBA around 11.30am which again should paint a clearer picture on the RBA's next rate move and their thoughts on the economy.
