Market Update - 28th July 2016 - U.S Fed Keeps Rates Steady, AUD Holding Just Below 0.7500

Posted by Patrick Downes on July 28, 2016 at 9:43 AM

I'm running a little behind schedule today - so just a short update.

The Aussie dollar has had a wild 24 hours of trade following local CPI and the latest U.S Fed meeting this morning with AUD trading between 0.7400-0.7600 vs. the Greenback and 0.6750-0.6900 vs the Euro. Local CPI came in slightly above expectations yesterday morning but may still be too small a number for the RBA to avoid cutting interest rates to a record low of 1.5% next Tuesday. Markets are pricing the chances at about 50/50 so a cut to rates will have an even more dramatic impact should the RBA decide to get on the front foot re: inflation.

We have no further data due out today, but the latest U.S GDP figures tomorrow evening will round out the week.




AUD/USD – 0.7497

AUD/GBP – 0.5675

AUD/EUR – 0.6784

AUD/NZD – 1.0588

AUD/JPY – 78.980
