For any trader who was an Australian Dollar bear, Friday was about as depressing a day as it has been all year, AUD/USD coming within a pip of its 2016 high of 0.7835 and closing at its highest level since May 21st 2015. A lot of analysts are now going to have to re-evaluate where they stand with the Australian Dollar for the rest of this year as any economist still forecasting a move below 0.70 – it looks a long way down from here. Downside surprises on US headline and core CPI (the fourth in succession) Retail Sales and Consumer Sentiment, made it a miserable day for the US dollar. Combined with the VIX falling further below 10 and retesting the 9.36 year-to-date low, this tells you just about everything you need to know about the AUD’s 0.7832 NY closing level.
