Forex: AUD/USD extends its upside

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Aussie dollar is inching higher on Monday, regaining the 1.0300 mark and currently hovering over 1.0325/30 on increasing risk-on tone.

Against the backdrop of the RBA gathering next week, analyst Adrian Foster at Rabobank commented, “Analyst s favour on hold with a probability of 76% and looking at the Future market, market pricing is 63% in favour of hold. There can be much larger divergences between the two than that so I rate them as pretty consistent with each other and the net message of the two signals the ‘market’ is 70% in favour of the RBA on hold at next week’s meeting”.

At the moment, the cross is up 0.45% at 1.0328 with the next resistance at 1.0339 9high Apr.25) ahead of 1.0344 (MA55d) and finally 1.0358 (high Apr.19).
On the flip side, a breach of 1.0263 (low Apr.26) would expose 1.0232 (low Apr.24) and then 1.0221 (low Apr.23).
