Market Update - 11th October 2016 - Markets & Aussie Subdued Amid Data & News Vaccum

Posted by Patrick Downes on October 11, 2016 at 8:20 AM

A lack of data overnight and a gripping second debate between Drumpf and Clinton leaves markets little changed from yesterday. AUD/USD is still teetering around the 0.7600 figure, while the GBP has continued its slow and steady decline against most currencies. AUD/GBP is now near its highest levels since the tail end of the European debt crisis back in mid 2013.

Again we have no crucial data releases today, but Aussie stocks look set to open higher thanks to a boost in commodity prices overnight and strong session on both European and U.S equity markets.

No data releases


AUD/USD – 0.7584

AUD/GBP – 0.6130

AUD/EUR – 0.6805

AUD/NZD – 1.0633

AUD/JPY – 78.153
