AUD/USD focus on confidence gauges

Despite the brief knee-jerk from the vicinity of 0.8790, spot is closing the session well into the profit camp as markets enter the final part of the session. Moving forward to tomorrow’s docket in Oz, Business Confidence/Conditions tracked by NAB are due (8 and 4, prev. respectively) while Chinese New Loans figures will also grab investors’ attention ($730 billion exp.). “It is our view that AUD/USD could consolidate close to current levels in the near-term, though medium-term we expect that a continuation of a broad based USD recovery will push AUD/USD lower. The recent low in the region of AUD/USD0.8643 is likely to offer strong support, though we see risk that AUD/USD will be trading in the 0.85 area in the middle of next year”, noted Jane Foley, Senior Currency Strategist at Rabobank.
