The price in the Aussie is robust in bullish territory on the short-term sticks, but remains bounded in a four cent range on the longer term sticks. Fundamentally, the pair awaits the New Year celebrations to clear and markets to get back to business, and that stays with the Fed, oil and the RBA with China in the background stoking the fire.
