AUD/USD looking to springboard from 0.7200 heading into China trade numbers

  • Aussie opening the week on the hopeful side, remaining bid near 0.7200.
  • China trade data to kick off the new trading week.

AUD/USD opens the new week pinned to the 0.7200 handle as Pacific traders look to Chinese trade data to help bolster the Aussie further as forex markets head into an event-heavy week.

The week's action starts off early with Chinese Trade Balance figures due early in Monday's Pacific-Asia market window, though market volumes will be constrained with Japanese markets dark in observance of Coming-of-Age Day, but Antipodeans will be looking for a fresh push from Chinese numbers.

Chinese Imports for the annualized period into December are expected to rise from 3% to 5%, with Exports expected to decline to 3.0% from 5.4%, and the new Trade Balance for December is forecast at $51.53 billion versus the last reading of $44.71 billion.
