AUD/USD camping out at 0.73 awaiting impetus

FXStreet (Guatemala) – A better bid AUD/USD overnight, scoring territory on the 0.73 handle, albeit capped there for now, has private sector credit on the agenda for today while at the end of the week and year we have Chinese non-manufacturing and NBS manufacturing PMI’s for December.

There was a slightly better risk tone appetite today in Europe and that followed through to the US session as well as oil bounced back off the lows. Moving over to 2016, we will await the RBA’s next move at their meeting in February – to hold or to cut? Data between now and then is going to be vital and Fed speaker’s comments will be scrutinised in Q1 as we try to gauge the timings of the next rate hike and how gradual they might arrive in 2016 and 2017.
