Earlier today, Aussie moved slightly upwards to 0.6778 after the RBA released its monetary policy minutes. 

20 August 2019, OctaFX – The Australian dollar rose slightly after the RBA released minutes for the meeting held on August 6. In the minutes, the officials expressed concerns about the global economy, particularly among its major trading partners like China.

The officials also praised the weaker Australian dollar, which they believe is positive as it boosts exports. Domestically, they said that the economy had made some improvements as a result of the resources sector and increased consumption. On the housing side, they said that there was some evidence that housing conditions were improving in Sydney and Melbourne, where prices have increased slightly.

Finally, the members said that the low-interest rates could remain for a considerable amount of time.
