The AUDUSD pair returns to the red zone in the European session and looks to test the 0.7150 support zone on the back of unabated US dollar buying across the board. An analyst shared what to expect next in the following 4 September AUDUSD Technical Outlook.
4 September, OctaFX – Markets seek safety in the US currency, as the risk sentiment remains fragile amid ongoing Emerging Markets (EM) currency crisis and global trade tensions. The US dollar index jumped to 95.56, the highest levels in two weeks, having consolidated briefly near 95.20 region.
Dead cat bounce on RBA monetary policy decision?
Meanwhile, a profit-taking slide heading into the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Governor Lowe cannot be ruled out after the Aussie sought temporary relief from the RBA’s mild optimism on the Australian economic prospects.
Earlier today, the RBA maintained status-quo for the twenty-third meeting in a row, keeping the Official Cash Rate (OCR) unchanged at a record low of 1.50%.
Markets eagerly await the speech by Lowe for some fresh trading impetus while the USD dynamics and weaker copper prices will continue to undermine the OZ currency.
