Australian dollar rises sharply to 0.7105

The AUDUSD pair rose sharply at the market’s open and then pared those gains. This was primarily because of the optimism in the US-China trade deal.

March 4, OctaFX – Australia, being close to China in the Pacific, is one of the countries with the most exposure to China. For example, most of its iron ore is shipped to China. Therefore, if the Chinese economy sinks, Australia is usually very exposed.

Earlier today, Australia released mixed economic data. The building approvals rose by 2.5% in January while the business inventories and gross operating profits of -0.2% and 0.8% missed the consensus estimates.

AUDUSD technical analysis
