AUD/USD: Bullish bias to extend into the New Year?
The Aussie defends minor bids on the final trading day of 2017, although remains within the striking distance of the multi-week tops reached just ahead of the 0.78 handle.
The spot stalls its upside largely on the back of a minor correction seen in gold and copper prices, which puts a lid on the resource-linked AUD. However, the major finds support from the fresh selling seen in the US dollar alongside Treasury yields.
Also, upbeat Australian private sector credit data continues to underpin the sentiment around the Aussie. Australia Private Sector Credit (MoM) registered at 0.5% above expectations (0.4%) in November.
There is nothing of relevance, in terms of macro news, to be reported in the day ahead and hence, light trading and USD dynamics will continue to remain the key driver influencing the pair.
